St. Valentine’s Day Chocolate Expo at Hakata Hankyu

START: Feb 1, 2019 END: Feb 14, 2019

Over 140 international and Japanese brands of chocolate go on sale, including French and Belgian chocolate bonbons, local chocolate with dried persimmons and Fukuoka’s Amaou strawberries, to mention a few. The chocolates here go way beyond the basic chocs and bars! At the eat-in corner, enjoy rich chocolate gelato from Italian gelato brand Babbi as well as iced sweets made with cacao pulp and syrup and hot cocoa from Iizuka-based bean-to-bar shop “Cacaoken”. Looking for Japanese-style chocolate? Ikebana-themed chocolate will also be on sale, a nice gift idea for Valentine’s or as souvenirs. The event runs for only two weeks so be sure to buy whatever catches your eye!
