In 2018, she appeared on the NHK program “The world is overflowing with things I want”, and in 2020 she published her second book, “Searching for “ Happiness Chocolate ” (Shinchosha). Misato Kinouchi invites chocolatiers around the world to select local chocolates from overseas, all of which are ultra-rare and
super-premium. This season, 96 brands and 165 items from 35 countries and regions, the largest number ever, will be gathered. Among them, [First landing in Japan] is 11 brands, 27 items, and [Felissimo Only] is 132 items.
