About 100 years ago, as you know, they made up some revolutions called as Russian Revolution in 1917. And then, they built up the first nation of socialism in our history.


Naturally, not all of people longed for the revolution and socialism at the time. Some Russian people came to Japan as refugees. Makar Goncharoff, an establisher of a confectionery maker; Goncharoff Seika, was one of them.

Makar is well-known but his whole life is not clear just like mist hides, for no one clearly knows his birth year and his death year. Some say Makar went to China after leaving Japan and others say Makar migrated to Australia, but it is still unknown. It is only sure that he established Goncharoff Seika in Kobe, Hyogo.

They say the Romanov dynasty had hired Makar Goncharoff as their court confectioner (*) and Goncharoff Seika has succeeded to his sense and soul, for basing their activities on Kobe and producing delicious confectioneries like cookies, pamiers and so on.


However, it is said what Makar Goncharoff firstly made after establishing his shop in Japan was chocolate. So it is almost no use having other kinds of their confectionery except chocolate, for the first time.

We here recommend you Goncharoff’s Kitty Chocolate, among their chocolate products. They make the two types of flavor, Sweet and Milk for Kitty Chocolate. Be careful because Sweet means bitter. Milk is sweeter. The size and the sweetness are just right for your comfortable tea time. You will be absorbed in the refined delicious chocolate.
