Japan might be most famous for cherry blossoms, but the country has another delicious obsession: strawberries. While the season for strawberries undoubtedly is spring, the wonderfully sweet-and-sour fruit can be enjoyed throughout the year and in various creative creations. For everyone with a strong sweet tooth out there, we’ve skimmed Tokyo and its department stores for the very best strawberry sweets!

The Beautiful Strawberry Bouquet of AUDREY, Nihonbashi Takashimaya

“Glacier,” set of 24 for 3,240 yen (tax excluded)

AUDREY is a sweets specialty store located in the famous Nihonbashi Takashimaya department store. It’s an absolute must-see shop, especially as a strawberry fan! Their most popular creation is a treat called Glacier. A plump, sweet-and-sour strawberry sits in the middle of refreshing milk cream, wrapped in a cookie that resembles langue de chat. This beautiful delight is created to look like a bouquet full of flowers, making it a great gift for everyone who knows how to enjoy a strawberry-licious treat.


Another highly from AUDREY is the Ronchanty. The large, chocolaty drop hides a savory strawberry inside, nestled in fluffy fresh cream that’ll melt right on your tongue. The coat of chocolate makes for a satisfying crunch as you bite into this heavenly dessert. The Ronchanty comes in both milk and white chocolate.

“Ruby,” one for 378 yen (tax included)

Finally, we urge you to try AUDREY’s Ruby. This photogenic creation seems to shine like a real ruby, with flavorful jelly coating a fresh strawberry that boasts a great balance between sweet and sour. A soft cookie acts as the base for this bright red dessert and a drop of rich milk jelly acts as a balance between mellow cookie and flavorful topping. Nothing harmonizes quite like milk and strawberry, right?
