Sweet Secrets at Shiroi Koibito Park, Hokkaido

Behind this wall, Cookie Disneyland!

Langue de Chat [Lengua de Gato] sandwich with white chocolate filling.  Maybe you’re familiar with the famous cookie!

img_0183In the unlikely event that you are not, Langue de Chat means “cat’s tongue” to connote the oval shape and thinness of the delicate French cookie that “melts” easily in your mouth.

Ishiya’s Shiroi Koibito brand cookie presents Shiroi Koibito Park, a confectionary wonderland that transports you to a delicious interactive dream.  I felt like a child when I crossed the gate’s threshold!

You can also have your picture incorporated in the tin design for a handsome commemorative take-home souvenir of your visit.  Unfortunately, the studio was under renovation at the time of this visit but as a consolation, entrance to the park was free!!!

The indoor section has displays on the history of chocolate, vintage artifacts related to confections and tea, among others.

The outdoor section is an artfully designed landscape, gardenscape, building scape, and simply, an escape from time, toil, and trouble.

Believe it or not, I am in this picture! 😉

For 360 feels…

One of life’s mysterious puzzles I’ve repeatedly encountered has been why theme park food has to be substandard.  Here at Shiroi Koibito Park, they broke the mold! That is not an issue as their food is delicious! I chose the Soup Curry (Soup ka-ri here) featured on the front cover of the Restaurant Owls menu. It did not disappoint and I was delightfully surpised! And oh, the rice!!!

To get here, just head for the basement of the tallest building with the clock tower.  The park has other dining outlets which you can try too.

Can you just imagine this place amp up its wonderland ambience when it’s lit up in winter!!!??
