Isshindo Honpo is a Japanese company that combines Japanese culture with contemporary design to come up with unique products like the design face mask and Shogi chocolates that have proven popular with foreign tourists. Their latest product is Nihon de Chocolat, a delicately packaged set of chocolates shaped like the country but scaled down to 1/25 million.
Allegedly the first of its kind, the snack is made from white chocolate, bubu-arare (tiny baked rice pellets) and plum. And it includes all 4 islands of Japan. A set of 4 sells for 702 yen (about $6.30).
Happy Valentine’s Day to all our readers!
