(Japanese)Delicious Hokusai!? "Ukiyo-e Éclair" Came Out - Tokyo Walker

"Éclair la Vague" (lit. Éclair of Wave, though we're not quite sure about the French spelling since it was written in Kanatana on our source) is this summer's specialty of FAUCHON, to be available at their stores in Takashimaya Tokyo, Takashimaya Shinjuku, Takashimaya Yokohama and JR Nagoya Takashimaya at the price of 525 yen, for the limited period until September 1st.

Filled with custard.

Made of quality ingredients such as Échiré butter.

Beautifully detailed. Printed on thin white chocolate, so you can eat it whole.
