EYE CANDY: TEMARI CHOCOLATES

By Mao Okawa

Are you getting tired of giving (or receiving) ordinary, boring chocolates for Valentine’s Day? If you’re tired with the usual, then how about surprising your sweetheart with ‘Temari Chocolate (手鞠ショコラ)’ of Saganoya (嵯峨乃彩). Temari is traditional Japanese embroidered ball.

Saganoya is a brand derived from Matsukazeya, Inc. in Nagoya. The brand’s image is the world of The Tale of Genji. The designer projected her thoughts in about the beauty of passing of one thousand years; the purest feelings to think of one’s precious moments.

These Temari chocolates designed by Aichi-based artist, Aya Kato, are colorful works of art and will definitely please the sight, taste, and heart.

Temari chocolates are available in Japanese department stores such as Kintetsu(近鉄百貨店), Takashimaya(高島屋), or Odakyu(小田急百貨店). Or you can get Temari chocolates online HERE (rakuten, in Japanese only).
