Kanazawa is one of the most beautiful bakeries in Japan. It was our fifth visit in two days when we managed to break through the rigour of the place. All the ladies in the cake section on the ground floor broke into a joyous applause. We used to come here for an authentic coffee and a slice of matcha cheesecake to enjoy at our table, surrounded by a beautiful decor. Kanazawa was for us the natural extension of the garden of the XXI Century Museum of Contemporary Art. We’ve walked across the park unwrapping Kotomin of different colours: yuzu, plum and tea flavoured one-bite cakes. A souvenir from Japan to ourselves.
