This can only happen in Japan: a serene place all dedicated to fruitcakes. The Berry Cafe located in Ginza is designed all in subtle black, yet the prices are not as high as the place might non-verbally communicate. Their only products are tarts and cakes decorated with the finest mangos, berries, watermelon, peaches, figs and lemon ginger all piled up in a style that might startle the European eye and even their taste buds. Of course you are not obliged to order a complete tart for yourself; you can order slices with prices ranging from 650 to 950 Yen. One can find the flagship cafe in Aoyama (Tokyo), with other branches in Nagoya (Aichi), Chiba City, Funabashi (Chiba), Hiroshima City, Nishinomiya (Hyogo), Kyoto City and Osaka City.
