1.Colombin Harajuku Salon

1.Colombin Harajuku Salon

Colombin’s founder Kuniteru Kadokura, used genuine French sweet making techniques to introduce authentic western sweets to Japan, establishing the shop’s reputation as a historic sweet producer.

In 1931, Colombin opened a salon in Ginza’s sixth district that had a ceiling decorated with a painting by master painter Tsuguharu Fujita, and the salon was visited by many important literary figures. It even makes an appearance in Junichiro Tanizaki’s novel “The Makioka Sisters”.

Today, it is said that shortcake, a cake seen in Japan as the representative western cake, was devised based on Kuniteru Kadokura’s knowledge, experience, and the techniques he learnt in France.

We have an apiary on the roof of our Harajuku store, and we use the home-made honey produced by this in our “Harajuku Honey Pudding”. We also have a range of other sweets that will get people talking, including “Harajuku baked Chocolat”, a popular gift to take home from Tokyo; “Harajuku Roll”, a cake roll filled to the brim with fresh cream; the enduringly popular lightly-baked cookies “Merveille”; and our cookie selection “Four Sec”.
