This year’s theme for Valentine’s Day at Hakata Hankyu is “For My Sweet Time,” and features an extraordinary collection of fine and fun chocolates from around the world.
At the main venue on the 8th floor, 75 brands of chocolates will be on display, including popular items by famous chocolatiers from France and Belgium, including some Hakata Hankyu exclusives! These include: seasonal Fukuoka Amaou strawberries dipped in Godiva’s ruby chocolate, bonbon chocolates made with single origin cacao, praline and gourmande by French master Alain Ducasse, butter sandwich cookies by Beilleavaire, the famous French fermented butter and cheese brand, a new chocolate made with cheese from Hokkaido, and much more. Then, on the first-floor venue, the popular caramel specialty store Number Sugar from Omotesando, Tokyo, and other brands showcase their tempting goodies!
This year, there are four venues: the 8th-floor event space (main venue), the 7th-floor Event Hall Muse, the 1st floor Media Stage, and the B1F Grocery Store. You can also use Hankyu’s remote order service, which allows you to order by phone while looking at the catalog without going to the venue.
Don’t miss the opportunity to shop from a selection of approximately 135 brands from overseas and Japan. Use chocolates to communicate with others, to be enjoyed with family and friends, or as a treat for yourself.
