Translated from Japanese:
Cobblestone cakes, truffle chocolate, tablet chocolate, etc. are always the main items, but there is also a rich lineup of baked sweets, and my recent favorites are the biscuit caramel and the chocolate roll cake in Solaria. It's my favorite shop that makes me excited.


Translated from Thai:
The chocolate shop has been passed down from generation to generation. There are many designs to choose from. Both cakes, ready-made chocolates, bonbon for sale. Old chocolate taste. Beautiful shop, lovely staff.


Translated from Korean:
Chocolate specialty store. I saw a team of Koreans, but most of the people in the store were Japanese. When you enter the store, if you go to the right, there is an automatic door. Please note that this is a place where chocolates are sold individually. When you enter the front door, what you see inside the store is packaged chocolate and desserts. The price is not cheap, but the texture is very smooth and the chocolate flavor is rich. Of course, there are chocolate specialty stores in Korea as well, but they are not common. If you are near your accommodation, I recommend giving it a try.
