Chocolate Shop

Cacao 365 Gion Shop, Higashiyama-ku, Kyōto
Fujifilm Finepix X100

A chocolate shop with a novel concept on the south side of Gion (祇園). The surface of each chocolate bears the design of a Kyōto seasonal motif. Following a Zen philosophical saying, "Everyday is different, this is the best treasure", the design is changed daily. To keep its freshness, the chocolate is prepared with minimum heat which creates an incredibly smooth texture. The mellow texture, gentle sweetness and rich aroma of cacao and milk – what a surprise and happy moment in the mouth.
