Enchanted by Chocolate
Like most of Asia, Japanese consumers came to crave chocolate later than their European counterparts, but in the last two decades the Land of the Rising Sun has made up for this tardiness by becoming the continent’s top purchasers per capita. Japan’s total confectionery market is worth more than 10 billion dollars, and chocolate makes up a significant percentage of that amount. And while some Japanese companies in larger cities near Tokyo and Yokohama have begun producing local chocolates, European chocolates remain the undisputed favorite, especially those featuring creative combinations and rich, not overly-sweet, cocoa.
Gifting as an Art
Luxury chocolates are especially popular as presents in Japan. Widely regarded as the most gift-oriented country in the world, Japan has a reputation for generous gift-giving where the overall presentation matters as much as the substance of the gift itself. zChocolat makes elegant gift-giving easy with a wide range of beautiful packaging options. For example, products from the Mahogany Collection arrive in beautiful solid wood boxes handcrafted in the Jura region of France, while gifts from the Chameleon Collection are packed in naturally blond Chestnut wood boxes made by artisans in Corsica, France. Recipients in Japan may especially appreciate the refined beauty of The Imperial . Featuring 550 pieces of the world’s best chocolate, The Imperial is filled with 28 individual assortment cartons arranged in a chic, dark-colored, lacquered wood box, sure to impress anyone with discerning tastes and a preference for exceptional chocolate. Regardless of which packaging is selected, gifts to Japan can be made even more personal with the addition of a customized note, individualized wax seal securing the chocolates, and other unique touches, guaranteeing they will stand out, even in a culture already obsessed with gifting.
Delicious Valentine’s Day Chocolates
Chocolate takes on a particularly important role when it comes to romantic gifting, especially around Valentine’s Day. Like many Western countries, Valentine’s Day in Japan is characterized by the exchanging of tokens and gifts to express affection for loved ones. It is especially common for women to purchase chocolate gifts for men in honor of Valentine’s Day. zChocolat’s Romantic Collection, with its line of uniquely decadent and decidedly love-inspired products is perfect for the occasion. Heart-shaped chocolates, oversized chocolates, and gold leaf-covered chocolates, are the perfect way to incorporate genuine French savoir faire to any romantic occasion.
Send White Day Gifts to Japan
Women may make the majority of purchases on Valentine’s Day in Japan, but the tables turn one month later on White Day, when men traditionally pamper their loved ones with chocolate gifts. Generally expected to exceed the generosity of any Valentine’s Day gifts received in February, White Day is an exercise in delicious excess. While all varieties of chocolate and candies are appreciated, white colored confections are especially popular. The zChocolat White Z Chocolate assortment, featuring a velvety smooth white chocolate couverture surrounding layers of caramel and crunchy hazelnut praline, is a favorite among Japanese sweethearts thanks to its smooth exterior and satisfying filling. Powdered sugar-covered Noisettines, candied-cantaloupe Calissons d'Aix covered in white icing, and chewy, almond-studded Nougats also make exceptional White Day gifts. And with flat-rate, three-day shipping throughout Japan, no matter whether your special someone enjoys the noisy nightlife in Osaka or the peaceful public gardens in Tokyo, her chocolates will arrive on time and in perfect condition.
All our chocolates are handmade by our chocolate master Pascal Caffet, World Champion Chocolatier, with zealous adherence to French tradition: no alcohol, no preservatives, no coloring, high cocoa content, low sugar and 100% pure cocoa butter.
No matter where your recipient lives, our unique temperature sensitive packaging and rapid DHL Express delivery mean connoisseurs of zChocolat’s all-natural, preservative-free confections can enjoy French chocolate anywhere in the world.

Corporate Chocolates for All Occasions
Japan’s affinity for gift-giving is particularly pronounced when it comes to business gifts. A number of customs dictate business gifting practices in Japan, with a strong insistence that gifts be presented at the end of an interaction and a cultural preference that they be handed over using two hands (rather than just one) as a show of respect. As in other situations in Japan, the more beautifully wrapped the gift, the more meaning attached to it. Because zChocolat gifts always look as good as they taste, they make an excellent option for occasions where appearance as well as overall quality must be taken into consideration. The option to handpick chocolates to create a custom assortment composed exclusively of the recipient’s favorite recipes as well as the ability to include the recipient’s name engraved on the packaging are just some of the many personalization options that have helped make zChocolat a top choice for over 8000 companies in 120 countries around the world, including Japan.
