One of the main movers and shakers behind the city's 'bean to bar' chocolate trend – which, by the way, is showing no signs of slowing down – Minimal set up their third Tokyo outpost in Shirokane-Takanawa in January. They've got their chocolate factory right behind the store, meaning that you'll likely be greeted by wafts of cacao upon entering and have the chance to witness a chocolate bar being created from scratch. They'll be offering their daily-made chocolate dip too, so don't miss out. So far, they plan to only offer take-out and merchandise at this location, so you'll have to practice some proper delayed gratification techniques before sitting down somewhere else to savour your chocolates.
