Colombin, which was founded in 1924 and boasts of being the first provider of authentic French sweets in Japan, is putting a Japanese twist on traditional French goodies with the release of bright green, matcha-flavored sweets in select shops until June 26.

Notable items include the roll cakes filled with plenty of whipped cream and matcha (green tea) ganache (¥1,296) and the Mont Blanc (¥540) made with Uji green tea from Kyoto.

If you’re in Ueno, the branch there sells panda-inspired roll cakes (¥1, 388) and shortcakes (¥648) that are as adorable as the real ones in Ueno Zoo.

JR Ueno Station 3F, 7-1-1 Ueno, Taito-ku; 03-5826-5688.
