Salon du Chocolat 2013

With Valentine's Day just a few weeks off, Tokyo's most indulgent romantics will be heading to Shinjuku Isetan to stock up on fancy choccies at this year's Salon du Chocolat. Now into its 11th year, the Tokyo incarnation of Paris's famous chocolate trade show bears little relation to its French forebear: gone are the free samples, workshops and chocolate fashion shows, replaced by what more closely resembles a department store food court on the first day of the New Year sales. If you don't mind braving the crowds, though, there'll be a range of exotic, hard-to-find treats on offer from the likes of world-famous chocolatiers Patrick Roger and Fabrice Gillotte – and look out for the Japan debuts of Sébastien Gaudard and Frédéric Hawecker.
