[Hokkaido/Sapporo] Day 03 - Shiroi Koibito Park + Ishiya Chocolate Factory
I am a big fan of Shiroi koibito cookies, and I generally enjoy eating their chocolate cookies. I travel to Japan pretty often, but have never had the chance to visit their chocolate factory. Baby added this in as part of our Hokkaido trip!
After my simple brekkie in the room, we headed over to Shiroi Koibito Park via the local train Tozai Line from Odori station to Miyanosawa station. A 10-minute short walking distance is required to get to the park. The cold weather made the distance seem longer as it was really chilly and the road was slippery.
I took many random photos at the winter wonderland park, and it looked really beautiful, especially the entire park was covered by snow.
The admission to the Ishiya Chocolate Factory cost us ¥600 per pax. We were given a cookie each before we started our chocolate journey with Ishiya.
The factory is not as big as I thought it would be, but it was beautifully designed with many interesting decorations. Our journey ended in less than 30 minutes, and we headed down to the famous Chocolate Lounge/cafe.
We had Shiroi Koibito Parfait, and it was awesomely delicious. It was really worth every single cent spent! Do not miss the desserts when visiting the park even though the price tag is a little hefty.
Before exiting the park, I took more photos. We walked another 10-15 minutes to AEON MALL SAPPORO HASSAMU for lunch. Baby stopped me and took this random photo of me (please pardon my messy hair).
We stopped by Restaurant Kakashi for lunch. After our lunch, I did some shopping and I went to try my luck with the claw machines again...
It was snowing pretty heavy at Hassamu while we were making our way to the HASSAMU JR Station.
Before I conclude my travel experience for the third day in Sapporo, we went to the Pokémon Centre which is located at Daimaru, Sapporo JR Station. I will share more soon...
