From my point of view 🙂
Most of the sizes in Japan is generally small compared to the other countries. So in most of the cases, one is not enough for most of people. But the cakes at “HARBS are different.” As stated as the concept of HARBS, the one satisfies and is enough for us very much.
Yes, the price is almost twice as much higher than the other shops so I hesitated to buy one for the first time. But once taste it, it is very difficult to go back to the other regular cakes selling in Japan. No wonder this is recognized as the No.1 cake shop in Japan.
Now I always go to HARBS on my birthday and on the other special occasions. According to my statistics, HARBS is the No.1 cake shop in Japan.
Generally, cakes made in Japan is quite unique compared to the western countries where are the origins of cakes. The texture is more lighter and very soft. The whip cream is like bubbles. Not too sweet overall. It maybe important to feel the balance in taste.
If you have chance to visit the area where HARBS are, I strongly recommend trying.
