Henri Le Roux Salted Butter Caramel (C.B.S.)

I hope someone in Tokyo can help me.

On a visit to Tokyo, I became addicted to the Henri Le Roux C.B.S. Tart which I bought on the food floor of the Isetan Department Store in the Shinjuku district. I have been able to locate the caramels (in France) but have not been able to locate the TART.

According to the Le Roux website, his products are made in France (Landévant) and exported to Japan – however, the C.B.S. Tart is not listed anywhere on the website. So it is possible that the caramel is shipped to Japan and the tart produced in Japan.

I have posted on the Chowhound ‘France’ site (without success), but rather than give up, I wonder if any Japan Chowhounds have the knowledge/wherewithal to discover whether the TART is an import, or perhaps made locally in Japan.

Can anybody help in my quest?
