List of all Kantaro: The Sweet Tooth Salaryman's Dessert Shops!

We've got a new favourite TV show on Netflix: Kantaro: The Sweet Tooth Salaryman! Netflix markets it as a "Netflix Original," but we're not sure if it's really an original, or if it's just an international broadcast of an old/existing Japan TV series.

In any case, the entire show is based on a Manga: Saboriman Ametani Kantarou, in which book Salesman Kantarou plays hooky after his sales visits to visit dessert shops around Tokyo, eat sweets, and make orgasm faces.

Yes, really.

The plot and storyline is a little absolutely bonkers in the way only Japan can be, but the introduction and descriptions of the various desserts and sweet shops are amazing. If you're looking for a list of the exact places covered in the TV series - perhaps if you're paying Tokyo a visit soon - we've got you covered! Unfortunately given the limited time, we could only cover about a third of the shops, though. Do leave us a comment if you've experienced any of the rest!
