The Shiroi Koibito Park is a theme park where you can personally experience Sapporo's famous Shiroi Koibito cookies by touring where they are made, making heart-shaped Shiroi Koibito yourself, and enjoying yourself in a café corner surrounded by antique furniture.
During the factory tour you can see the process gone through to make the cookies, including the stages of sandwiching chocolate between oven-fresh "langue de chat" cookies, cooling them, printing best-before dates and packaging them individually. There's also a corner where you can learn about the confectionery's history as well as about the chocolate.
The facility's attractions have been upgraded, there is a parade of characters that can be seen every hour on the hour at the Sapporo Trick Clock Tower, the "Old Toy Box" where there is an exhibition of nostalgic old toys (free entrance), and a 6-car mini train railway Shiroi Koibito Railway (adults 300 yen, 12 years old 200 yen).
There is also an ice cream shop and chocolate drink shop on site as well as other restaurants and café corners.
And a corner where you can enjoy original sweets from the Ishiya confectionery, as well as various sweets that you can't buy anywhere else!
