One of the first exclusively bean-to-bar focused chocolate shops in Tokyo, Tomigaya's Minimal sources cacao beans from select producers all over the world and creates delectable treats at their factory, upholding the ideal of maintaining in-house control of the entire production process. Their latest venture, a takeout-only spot in central Ginza, lets you try before you buy – and we're not talking just the finished product here. The Bean to Bar Stand also offers free samples of freshly roasted cacao beans, whole cacao nibs and ground nibs, giving you a taste of all four steps in the chocolate-making process. With chocolate ice cream and cacao pulp juice on the menu as well, a stop here should be bliss for all you choc-lovers out there.
