Near the Japan-obsessed Rue Sainte Anne, there’s a hidden spot called Tomo, a Tokyoite pastry shop dreamt up by Takanori Murata (ex-Aida) and Romain Gaia. A luminous space (big bay windows, light wood furniture) where their famous dorayaki (those delicate Japanese pancakes) are presented like precious jewels. They get made all day long and are filled with lovely things: there are classics like the one filled with sweet red bean paste, or the pimped out versions with yuzu-infused ricotta, orange blossom or pralines, plus baba au whiskey or lemon and yuzu tart versions…. Other delights that you can devour in house or take to go include beautiful fruit-flavored mochi (strawberries and figs from last summer) or cream-filled mochi (sesame, matcha), along with flavored cakes, and a few prestigious teas – if you’re looking to give your credit card a workout. // Jean Pascal

The hidden gem: The Kurogoma daifuku, composed of rice flour dough stuffed with black sesame / white chocolate ganache and a red bean purée (€5 a piece).
