“Havaro” – Edible Flower Desserts at Tokyo Station

In the shopping area of Tokyo Station, among various stores, you can discover a unique dessert named “Havaro,” made using edible flowers. Havaro is a type of dessert originating from France, crafted using milk, cream, and anglais (Bavarian cream), and it is primarily enjoyed as a sweet treat.

“Upgraded with Edible Flowers”

Originally a dessert imported from France, Havaro has undergone a more vibrant transformation in Japan by incorporating edible flowers. The Havaro with flowers is known to be found in only one place in Japan, specifically at the “TOKYOME+” shopping area on the 1st floor of Tokyo Station. The small shop named “Havaro” gained attention after being featured on a travel program.

“Havaro at Tokyo Station”

In Tokyo Station, there is a shopping area called “TOKYOME+,” where small shops densely populate the space. It is located on the 1st floor of Tokyo Station.

My companions and I visited “TOKYOME+” at Tokyo Station to taste Havaro. Although it took a bit of searching, we were fortunate to locate a store named “Havaro.” While not large in scale, the shop offered a variety of Havaro products.

“A Considerable Size”

Expecting Havaro to be small, it turned out to be quite substantial. Considering we had just finished a meal, eating an entire Havaro seemed daunting. As an alternative, we decided to order individual servings in small cups displayed next to the main product. The larger Havaro was priced at 2,400 yen each, a bit hefty, but the smaller ones were around 400 yen each, which was around 4,000 won, making them reasonably affordable.

“Jelly with Edible Flowers”

The upgraded Havaro in Japan features jelly with edible flowers, making it a visually appealing dish. It was almost too beautiful to eat, but since it was made in a sort of ice cream form, we had to consume it promptly to prevent it from melting.

For those who prefer takeout, they offer ice packing as well. Basic packaging is free for up to 1.5 hours, and beyond that, additional fees apply. They can pack it for a maximum of 5 hours, and for this, an extra 400 yen charge is applicable.

“Tasting Havaro for the First Time”

Tasting Havaro for the first time left a lasting impression. With its price not being overly burdensome, it served as a delightful dessert after a meal. If I find myself near Tokyo Station again, I might revisit to indulge in this unique dessert once more.
