Why Sadaharu Aoki is special ?

At Isetan, you should stop at Sadaharu Aoki, based in both Paris and Tokyo. Aoki is a master with matcha (Japanese green tea powder); you can combine cultures in sampling his matcha croissant (334 yen, or about $3.30), which you can also try plain or with chocolate. Ask when they arrive so you can be sure to get them fresh (and before they run out). Even better is the matcha éclair (408 yen, or about $4, and also available in lemon and caramel). You can't eat these treats on-site, but one of the best parts of the depachika is the thoughtful and smart packaging that goes with every purchase. Note, though, that photography is not allowed in the stores.

Reviews

If you google the best five patisserie at Tokyo, Sadaharu Aoki is apparently on the list. For an internationally renowned Japanese chef patissier, especially in both Paris and Tokyo, I was so excited to have the chance to taste his works, or art pieces. After the visit, I could only say that he didn't let me down at all. Tokyo Midtown is a trendy, stylish mall located at Roppongi, Tokyo. I think thats why Mr. Aoki chose this location of his patisserie. When steeping out Roppongi Station of Hibiya line into Midtown, this elegant store in a pure white would easily catch your eyes. However, in my surprise, this patisserie is a little bit small than I thought initially, only with around 10 seats in the store. If you want to enjoy the cake in the patisserie, ordering a beverage would be required. The strawberry tart I ordered is a little bit normal on appearance ( still very beautiful), but the taste is awesome and balanced. I felt a little bit regret that I should order other cakes which combine the French style elegance with Japanese exquisiteness. Such as the decoration of bamboo or with a mysterious purple drawing, they must be the art pieces, must be. The macarons, well, you can't compare them with PH or Laduree, but still above the average. One more thing, if you have the cake inside, they would offer you a mini tiny chocolate on the plate, which is a sweet surprise for me and the chocolate tastes not so bitter and not so sweet. Perfect flavor. I will surely come here again next time to explore more of Mr. Aoki's arts.
