Dark chocolate only please.

For those that read Japanese, the website even lists the origins, history, and cultural differences of Valentines' Day in the US. Everyone loves chocolate, but chocolate with a bit of education or a story tastes even better!

I've learnt from doramas that Valentine's Day in Japan has different traditions - only girls or women give chocolate! We never knew it before, but now it's quite popular. Here both genders can give chocolate.

We never celebrated it before, so here it's just for young people.
