World’s First Godiva Bakery Has Opened in Tokyo

In the heart of Tokyo’s Yurakucho district, the world’s first Godiva bakery, “Godiva Bakery Godipan,” has opened its doors, bringing a unique blend of Belgian chocolate craftsmanship and Japanese bakery delights to the bustling metropolis. This innovative venture by Godiva Japan Inc. seeks to redefine the bakery experience by infusing everyday bread with the richness of premium chocolate.

The concept behind Godiva Bakery Godipan is a delightful fusion of a local bakery and the renowned Godiva chocolate brand. With a nod to both newness and nostalgia, the bakery aims to offer a diverse range of bread, catering to Japanese tastes while introducing a touch of Godiva’s global flair. The bakery, strategically located in the Yurakucho shopping district, encapsulates the essence of Tokyo’s modernity intertwined with tradition.

The menu boasts approximately 30 tantalising bread options, including classics like custard cream buns, chocolate cornets, and the innovative curry bread, all priced between 300-400 yen (US$2-3). What sets Godiva Bakery Godipan apart is its commitment to using fresh, in-house-produced chocolate, cream, and cacao as “secret” ingredients, ensuring a unique and indulgent experience with every bite.

Among the seasonal selections, a Christmas limited tote set (Stollen Chocolat) is priced at 756 yen, showcasing the bakery’s commitment to offering a diverse range of flavours and experiences.
