A Must Visit for chocolate lover! we re came in winter season and the scenery was really wonderful!. We took a short tour to the chocolate factory and browse their chocolate and souvenir shop! You can find all shiroi-koibito food products as souvenir for family (kinda expensive though, make sure you choose wisely)

After that were taking lots of photos of their mini wonderland and had relaxing on their outdoor cafe. Their hot chocolate and white-chocolate popcorn are a must buy!

Visited the famous Shiroi Koibito Park (also known as White Lovers Theme Park) as our families love chocolates. We knew it's a tourist trap and weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised it turned out to be quite enjoyable.

The whole place was decorated like a fantasy land with Tudor styled European architecture, miniature houses and huts for the little kids to play, and lots of snowmen and Christmas lightings. When night falls and the entire place lights up, it looks like a fairytale winter wonderland! It was beautiful and definitely Instagram-worthy.

The park entry is free but you have to pay 600 yen if you want to join the factory tour. There is also a section where you can see how candies are made. The only thing that spoils the experience is the souvenir shop is so crowded it is like a marketplace. Perhaps there were several tour groups there at the same time.

It's a magical winter paradise especially during winter or Christmas period. We went during early November, we still managed to admire the beautiful landscape around the park. We took a tour inside the chocolate factory. It's like a dream come true. Almost feel like we were inside Charlie & The Choc Factory. Plenty of fun things to do especially for young children with lots to see and do inside. You can see how chocs are made as well, admire many miniature collectable toys such as planes, cars, motorcycles and so on. Once we went outside, it was already dark, and the whole park was filled with colourful Christmas lights and decor. The snow fall around the park made it all so magical and it made us feel like a kid again. Christmas carols were being played and you wished that it was always like that all the time.

Only activities there are DIY (for pay). Kids walked around, looked thru the glass, looked at some art and that's it.

Best part was outside for photo ops.

I've included a photo of the factory so you can save your money...

Went here in February. Unfortunately, we got there in the evening so it was closed but we enjoyed walking around the park area. The lights are beautiful. The music is magical. And it started to snow, light fluffy snow. We couldn't resist getting some Hokkaido soft serve from the stall, it was delicious. Then went inside near the bathrooms to warm up lol. You can by the chocolate in many locations so didn't feel like I missed out of that.

The public area is free entry, the staff were consistently courteous and the environment was beautiful. visitors can bring back a stamped image and the staff were attentive and topped up the papers for stamping when it ran out. we reached there at 6pm and most of the demonstrations on making chocolates and sweets were over. we hope to visit this place again.

The chocolate factory was a winter fantasy land. Great place to take pictures, lots of excitement around, kids having a great time. It was particularly beautiful at night.

For some, the best part was the outdoor gardens with Christmas lights all aglow. For others, the factory tour was interesting and the best part. Myself, the cookie factory was just a viewing station with four different windows giving different views of the workers making the white chocolate cookies. It wasn’t worth lining up 20 minutes for the tickets. The cookie box tag-line says “a feeling of satisfaction”. I wasn’t feeling satisfied from the factory floor viewing. Five or 10 minutes seeing the factory is all that is needed.

My recommendation is to forego the factory tour, visit the small gardens and have high-tea at the cafe.

Visiting the chocolate factory and Shiroi Koibito Park was just alright. I was actually pretty excited to visit this attraction and took a subway to the nearest station from Sapporo Station. I did the tour and it was a bit underwhelming. You get a few free chocolate snacks during the tour which is nice and a lot of the displays were cute. They have a decent cafe on the second floor and a gift shop on the first floor. It's a great place to get gifts to bring back. I did enjoy the outside of the park, the buildings were pretty. I don't know, it's probably more exciting if you have kids. I guess, I am glad I visited, but I wouldn't need to go back.

The tour of the factory is ok. There's the history of Shiroikoibito and you get to see some of the workers making the cookiers but its all from above and behind a glass window.

The Lounge or Cafe area is very relaxing and has more of a European feel to it. From 11-3pm, there is a Cake buffet. All-You-Can-Eat, for 90mins for 1500 Yen per person, approximately $15.00 USD or CAD.

If you don't want to stuff your face, there's also a cake set you can purchase that has a slice of cake and beverage of your choice.

Great place to get omiyage or treats for family or friends. Good quality stuff.

Was there on Tuesday. Tips for everyone when trying to find your way to this place:
1) If you are taking the JR, it can't reach there directly. It would be good if you took the subway to Miyanosawa.
2) On reach the subway station, there are huge signs which show the exits to take towards Shiroi Koibito.
3) Once you have reached the street levels, follow the blue signs indicating the location. It links you all the way to the Chocolate Factory.

On entering, was greeted politely and warmly by the staff. Went around exploring this place, it is huge and amazing (especially in winter). It makes for a perfect and relaxation getaway (surprisingly I love this place more than Tokyo Disneyland), as they play very relaxing and sweet music to put you in the mood of "falling in love".

Tried my hands on the making of Shiroi Koibito. The staff are very friendly and patient, even if you do speak limited Japanese. In the end, the making of the cookies was a success and ended up taking photos with the staff!

The personalisation of photo on the Shiroi Koibito tin is also very prompt and the friendly staff will try and help you as much as they can, always with a smile on their faces. After the photo is done on the tin, they will make sure you are pleased with everything before you go.

If given the opportunity, I would make this as my first stop once again when in Sapporo.
