Japanese, like citizens of many other countries, celebrate Valentine's Day on February 14th. However, there is a twist. In Japan it is customary for females give chocolates or other small gifts to males to celebrate the event. Honors are returned one month later on March 14th, "White Day," when males offer chocolates and other gifts to females.
In celebration of both distinctively Japanese events, Gucci's flagship Ginza Tokyo Store is offering a limited edition "White Gucci Chocolate" in the building's 4th floor Gucci Chocolate Cafe.
The special product will be available through "White Day" (March 14th). The heart-shaped treats are composed of full-bodied raspberry ganache coated with Gucci's signature white chocolate. The morsels are wrapped in an exclusive, ribbon bound package and are available only by direct purchase from Gucci's Ginza Shop.
