While picture researching a feature on cool stairways, I came across this image from the new Godiva Store in Japan which combines my two current passions – chocolate and, er, staircases. ‘Chocoiste’ is in the fashionable Harajuku district of Tokyo (think Hello Kitty and girls in bunches) and takes the ‘tempt ’em with your merchandise’ mantra to new levels, offering enough choccy sweetness to give Willy Wonka a hypo. Something tells me, however, that the sweet sensation on the walls and ceiling leading up to the second floor doesn’t taste half as good as it looks… Nicola, picture editor
