We visited on a light snowy day, before all other visitors. Imagine the romantic scene of a lot of our childhood dreams. Once inside, there are lots of photo sites for the camera people, lots of cookies, chocolates, ice creams on sale for the sweet tooth, and a toy museum for the nostalgics. As in other chocolate factories in some... More

Shiroi Koibito is a famous Japanese cookie maker. Around their factory, they created some theme park elements which were particularly nice in winter. Inside, there are factory tour, a toy museum, a cookie baking workshop and several other collections of nostalgia available. All in a beautiful mansion. Our children, particularly loved the winter-wonderland outside and the cookie baking workshop where... More

You take the train to Miyanosawa station and the factory is under 10 minutes walk from the station. The outside of the factory and the building's exterior is very whimsical and European looking and there's really cute decorations outside the main building with lots of photo opportunities. A ticket to tour the inside is 600 yen and you get one... More

It was not quite what I expected. Prior reviews compare it to Willy Wonka's place, which it does feel a bit like due to the magical clock tower, ornate buildings, and outdoor kids houses play land. Getting there is very easy: Get off at the Miyanosawa subway station, west out the station (map is right there to guide you), right... More

This was a quick tour. Sometimes hard to find your way around as you are supposed to follow these little cat feet. It was nice to be able to see the workers actually making cookies. This is a great place for kids. It reminds me a little bit like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

chocolate factory is always a good place for kids, with many activities to try on workshop or good food & icecream. with good info/presentation about how to make chocolate with great seeing the real factory. but mind you, a bit overrated, don't expect too much.

We visited the Shiroi Koibito Park because everyone we knew who has been to Sapporo spoke highly of it. The building and interior are beautiful, the entrance fees reasonable. The self-guided tour takes about 30 minutes, which is interesting if you haven't been to a chocolate factory tour before (we have gone on the Hershey factory tour). The hands-on cookie... More

Can't see myself coming back again though. We visited this place on the recommendation of a friend who really enjoys their products. It was cool to see the process of how the biscuits are made, but this is something you'd only need to see once. Views from the cafe are fantastic so it's worth waiting for a window seat. As... More

The entrance fee is reasonable. The park together with the factory provide a good experience for those who love chocolate and would like to know how chocolate are made. The cafe in this Park (on the top floor) is simply awesome. Choose a table near the window when you dine. It is simply awesome. At certain hour (can't remember) the... More

It ain't Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory, but it is as real as we can get in real life. Hokaido is, of course, famous for it's dairy products but Shiroi Koibito Park adds a deeper meaning to its very existence. It is a fun chocolate factory bringing joy since the first time we come into its entrance. I can appreciate how... More
