Chocolate and Valentine’s Day a universal combination. In Japan, unlike in the rest of the world, it is women who give chocolates to men.

The Rihga Royal Hotel in Osaka this year decided to follow this tradition, inventing an unusual “chocolate”. The maitre chocolatiers have created ” Shinshi no Kagayaki” a pair of entirely made with chocolate shoes: uppers, soles, laces, stitching nothing was left to chance, every detail has been designed with great attention being able to easily fall into deception also a careful observer. Only 9 pairs of shoes were produced and went straight off the shelves at a price of 29.160 yen pair ($ 260).
