We could have spent more time here. Great place for kids and adults. Beautiful roses, tasteful cookies and handmade candies. The most amazing thing for me is I forgot my JR pass here and they made extra effort to contact me (which wasn't easy) and delivered it to my hotel with a small gift. A big mahalo (thanks) to Kaikimura... More

This was the first touristy place we visited when in Hokkaido. The chance to see the famous biscuits being produced and checked was interesting though the place was really packed. I especially enjoyed my time relaxing in the cafe with cupcake and ice cream! It also provided a good view of the surrounding sports field. There are many photo opportunities... More

We visited this place thinking that it would just be a chocolate factory showing their history and how the chocos were made. But we were so wrong! This place had so much more things. The rose garden and toy museum were one of them. My favourite place was the one where we could see through a glass panel and look... More

We had a great time wandering through the museum. You need to take time to view the well thought out exhibits and also watch the chocolate biscuit production on the factory floor which is a clean room with workers dressed in white overalls and shoe covers and masks and blue gloves. There are also activities like cookie making for those... More

This place is more a museum for toys, gramophone, cups, chocolate labels, rose garden than a confectionary so we are kind of disappointed because we are interested only in the confectionary bit. The guide book promises lots of free sampling which is not the case as everybody is given only a piece of cookie on payment of the 600 yen... More

Before exiting the station, get a map from the control station (see photo). Yes, they even printed them in colours. There are some signages fixed onto the lamp posts once you exit the station. So keep a lookout. The cookie-making class is conducted in mass so be early (arrive in the morning if you are keen to participate) because they... More

The guide told us this is a chocolate factory cum park which we need tickets to enter. As we walked to the ticket office, we could see this lover's park is lovely with a small train beside mechanical chefs chopping oranges. There is a flower garden with a heart, specially for lovers' to take pictures with. It is just the... More

It is still possible to enjoy the park without paying for the factory visit as the park has lots of seats and the cafe is open to the public. Look out for the clock tower performance every hour, and the small Karakuri theatre hidden under an awning slightly right of the Candy Labo entrance. The chocolate drink tastes like milo,... More

i think the park is brilliant. it's very unique and lots of things to see. you can sit on the park and just admiring the beautiful mountain at the back, or go to the shops and see the candy making, my kids love it so much, we had ice cream, and eat cakes inside the hall.

It is a small park at the frontage of Ishiya Chocolate Factory complex. It can be crowded and noisy when group tours are around. It is more of a mini theme park. And definitely not a lovers park. Keep a look out for the musical animation at upper level of 3 blocks of building on the left as you enter... More
