Sometimes, “a ton of chocolate” isn’t hyperbole. Running now until Dec. 26, ANA InterContinental Tokyo proudly presents Chocolate Sensation, a hotel-wide event celebrating cocoa-based culinary creativity; and to make sure there’s enough to go around, the hotel has procured multiple chocolate shipments that together weigh a whopping 4,500 kilograms.

Spread out between 10 of the hotel’s restaurants and bars, the event features 220 unique creations ranging from chocolate mojitos to cacao-marinated Angus beef tenderloin and every imaginable dessert in between. Many of these delectables use ruby chocolate, the latest and oft-talked-about addition to the chocolate family characterized by its natural pink color and berry-like tang.
