Bitter love for Japanese Valentine’s - News on Japan - Japanese News: "Bitter love for Japanese Valentine’s: that is, Japanese women are required to give chocolates to men for Japanese Valentine’s Day—men don’t give anything.
Poor Japanese women age from 14 to 40 must give their bosses, male colleagues, boyfriends and teachers on February 14th as part of their social duty. That “obligation chocolate is called giri-choco (義理チョコ) which comes from the words giri (obligation) and choco,, (チョコ) the shortened Japanese word for chocolate.

<- There a picture of an employee of Frantz Kobe Sweets showing off the “keys to her heart,'. It’s a perfert example of the opposite of giri-choco called honmei-choco—the real thing chocolate (for love)"
