“Rokka no Mori” is a chocolate produced by Rokkatei, a confectionery maker in Hokkaido.
Rokka no Mori is also the name of a garden owned by Rokkatei. It is located on the Nakasatsunai-mura, the southern part of Hokkaido Garden Kaido (Path).
Hokkaido Garden Kaido is a large garden park with 250 kilometers in length, consisting of 8 gardens. “Rokka no Mori” is one of the wild flowers blooming in Hokkaido.
There are 6 famous wild flowers in Hokkaido. Among them, the chocolate “Rokka no Mori” depicts the three flowers: hamanashi (rugosa rose), oobananoenreisou (trillium camschatcense) and ezonoryuukinka (caltha palustris). There are 4 pieces of each flavor, making it a total of 12 pieces in a box.
You may remember these flowers as they are illustrated on the wrapping papers and paper bags.
It is suggested to keep in a cool place under 25 degrees Celsius. As the chocolates are individually wrapped, it’s convenient to share.
These beautifully shaped chocolates are as delicate as the flower illustrations on the package.
The red “hamanashi” flower is strawberry flavor.
The white “oobanoanoenreisou” is milky white chocolate.
The “ezoryuukinka” is lemon yellow, tart passionfruit flavor.
It’s a lovely piece of art with an excellent mouth-melting satisfaction.
It made me want to visit “Rokkka no Mori” in Hokkaido Garden Path.
