Where To Buy The Royce Chocolate

Buying At Japanese Airports

Duty-free shop at the Shin Chitose Airport (Hokkaido)
Royce's products are available at the duty-free shops inside every Japanese international airport. This is the best place to buy them if you want to bring them back as a souvenir.

Ordering Them Online From Royce Chocolate Online (Japan Only)

If you live in Japan, you can order them online from Royce's official website. They are shipped from Hokkaido so it might take around two days for the products to get to where you are if you live outside of Hokkaido.

Buying Them In Tokyo

If you are in Tokyo, you can find them at stores specializing in selling Hokkaido products. Hokkaido is known for having some of the best food in Japan so they are definitely worth a visit!

You can buy them from Hokkaido Dosanko Plaza (北海道どさんプラザ) for instance. This store is located near the Yurakucho Station.
Hokkaido Foodist (北海道フーディスト) is another good store located near the Tokyo Station.

Buying From Overseas

If you live outside of Japan, you cannot order the products directly from Royce in Japan, as chocolate does not ship very well since it can melt easily. Your best bet would be to purchase them from a reliable online retailer in your country. The prices, however, will likely be about three times what you would pay for them in Japan.

Royce has an official online USA store from which you can buy, but take note that there is a flat shipping cost of $39.

Lastly...

Perhaps Japan doesn't have an image of a country that makes awesome chocolate, but Royce will surely change that perception if you have it. Give them a try when you come!
