In Kyoto, there are many shops that tickle girls’ hearts. Japanese sundries and sweets are all wonderful and you will be attracted to them.
For one thing, do you know that you can get chocolate that is different from usual?
About a six minute walk from Ginkakuji, Cacao Magic offers raw chocolate without roasted cacao beans.
Why don’t you get it as a reward for yourself or as a souvenir for someone special?
What is Raw Chocolate?
Raw chocolate is made from unroasted cacao at temperatures below 45 degrees Celsius without emulsifiers or white sugar.
Compared to general chocolate, it is less sticky in the mouth and has a refreshing aftertaste.
Since it is made without adding heat, you can directly feel the original flavor of cacao.
Recently, the number of shops selling raw chocolate has gradually increased, but there are not so many shops because it takes time and effort to make it.
