VANILLA BEANS chocolate shop in Yokohama
â€œCHOCOLATES MAKE YOU HAPPY!!â€ is the keyword of this VANILLA BEANS project. Two years ago, we altered a meeting room in their head office the multipurpose room to a multipurpose room which can function as a kitchen, dining and meeting space for all staff members.
Since then, we have run simulations in order to realize a real shop. They finally won the grand prize in â€œRAKUTEN shop of the year 2012â€³ and activated the real shop plan (RAKUTEN is a popular e-commerce site in Japan). â€œVANILLA BEANSâ€ shop is located in Bankokubashi in Yokohama where not so many people appear. We thought the point is how to provide a real entertainment which internet can never do. The cafÃ© where guests can enjoy limited menu watching the Ferris wheel of Yokohama.
The chocolatier that makes original chocolate in front of guests. The place where guests can feel a factory physically. And of course the joy to choose and buy from full range of the products.
â€œVANILLA BEANSâ€ shop was born with the ideas, â€œBUY & MAKE & EATâ€. We think we successfully realized shopâ€™s concept â€œCHOCOLATES MAKE YOU HAPPY!!â€. Still a new culture seems to be born in Yokohama. (Katsuya Iwamoto)
