The best Japanese chocolates I have had so far were from Mont St. Clair in Jiyugaoka. They are expensive:

The chocolates here are very good. Maybe you should bring your favorite chocolate bar and compare with the chocolate bars you'll find in the convenience stores. You don't need to get the expensive ones, but you can also try the pastry shops in dept stores with all their great chocolate desserts.

Some options 2011/2/27 00:13
Mont St. Clair in Jiyugaoka. They are expensive:

It's news to me that there is another "tasteful" shop of sweets in "Jiyugaoka" ("u" is prolonged). I know a similar older confectioner, also of a French name: Mont-Blanc. This shop offers fresh chocolate in winter, but I have never tasted it.
These two are located on the same side but to different directions of Jiyugaoka Station on Tokyu lines. Mont St. Clair will be closed on Wednesdays in this march. Mont-Blanc may be closed on Tuesday.

where in tokyo i can find some good chocolates? are they expensive?

Products available at confectioners on busy streets (like the two mentioned above) tend to be expensive.
Among Japan-based chocolate companies, Morozoff and Mary Chocolate are my favorites. (I can name another but it runs shops in Hokkaido.)
Many department stores / supermarkets in Tokyo have shops of the both.
e.g. Seibu and Tobu in Ikebukuro; Isetan, Keio and Odakyu in Shinjuku, Matsuzakaya in Ueno.
Morozoff also runs a shop in Tokyo Station. Mary (pronounced in Japanese like "merry") also runs a shop in Haneda Airport (Domestic Terminal 1 bldg.).

can anyone tell me what is the best chocolate in town?

That's a difficult question. It depends on persons and here are many manufacturers in Japan making various kinds of chocolate products.

Royce chocolate for the win! I was about to post about this Hokkaido chocolate that was ridic. good....but I couldn't remember what it was called - and then I saw the post above mine and was like - Thats what it was called! It's really good, soft, melt-in-ur-mouth, rich (but not too much so) chocolate. Def. worth traveling to Sapporo to get!
