In Japan, This Tea Room Offers To Taste Mount Fuji in Chocolate
Adored by tourists from all over the world, Mount Fuji is one of the most emblematic places in Japan. So if you can’t climb it, the Shorakuen tea room and shop offers a chocolate reproduction of the famous mountain to enjoy without moderation.
Highlighted by the media SoraNews24, the gourmet dessert is added to the Yamagashi range of the small shop, which already featured five Japanese mountains in the form of generous cakes. The collection quickly gained notoriety across the country, thanks to its meticulous reproductions of the mountains in chocolate ganache, sponge cake, and regional ingredients.
If until now, the products were only accessible online or in temporary pop-up stores, the brand inaugurated its first permanent store on January 21 in the trendy district of Yoyogi-Uehara. And what could be better than celebrating the occasion with Japan’s tallest mountain, Mount Fuji!
The cake is thus presented in layers illustrating the different geological strata with flavors of salty sakura petals and strawberry, matcha, and sweet red adzuki beans, and finally, crunchy chocolate with touches of green tea. Available in stores and on the shorakuen. com website, it is priced at 35 euros.
