Based in Jiyugaoka, this shop headed by chocolatier Yukihiko Kawaguchi has made it into central with an outpost inside Ginza Six. Neither cost nor effort is spared in their tailor-made cakes and chocolates: take the Terrine chocolat, which comes in three different types and strikes a delicate balance between the layers of fruit and pastry, or the cacao-heavy Cake Chocolat. We also like the Cake Blonde, made with slightly salty 'blonde' chocolate (said to have been born accidentally, when a chef let white chocolate sit in an au bain marie bath a little too long), and the Cake Chocolat Blanc, crafted with copious amounts of white chocolate. Most of the menu items here are exclusive to Ginza Six as well.
