Compartes Japan Jonathan Grahm Handmade Confections

Ask any self-respecting Japanese woman what she has planned for Valentine's, and she'll tell you that it's all been set — the chocolates, gifts, and dinner, all prepared and paid for, by her...The men, by the way, don't have to do a thing for the women on Feb. 14. Not till Mar. 14, but more on that later. This year, Japanese men who receive super high-end American brand chocolates such as Compartes should revel in the fact that their significant other had the time, money and taste to settle for nothing but the best for their men.
