A classical European-style mansion situated in a quiet, residential part of Fukuchiyama City, looking like a confectionery kindom on the outskirts of Paris. This is a chocolate store run by Chef Mizuno, who won the 2007 World Chocolate Masters, a championship for the world's greatest chocolate-makers. The large store has terrace seating, and the first floor has a corner with a showcase of cakes and baked goods, as well as a cave-like space surrounded by antique furniture. There is a sales corner for chocolate bonbons and macarons, and chocolates displayed like jewelry. The second floor is a café where all in-store products can be eaten. The prize-winning "Apricot and Salt" chocolate, as well as the different shades of macaron, are delightful goods to bring home.
