"Fun to all through of the buildings. You can go to the base of the clock tower and get your tickets for the Shiroi Koibito park day trip. There are all sort of memorabilia from cups and containers related to drinking chocolate over the last few 100 years. You also get to see the factory productions and how they churn out the famous Shiroi Koibito white lover cookies. The garden grounds are amazing and great for children, especially the numerous collection of mini doll houses for the kids to play with. The day trip finishes with a choral performance of their mannequin bakers singing at the top of the building overlooking the grounds."

"This is the place where thousands of thousands of the famous 白色恋人 cookies are made, having originated here in Hokkaido. This place can be easily access via Tōzai Line (Miyanosawa Station) about 7 stations from Odori Station. Upon arrival at Miyanosawa Station, just follow the sign all the way for about 5-10mins."

"The exterior of the Shiroi Koibito park (白い 恋人 パーク) is like a fantasy place, with beautiful architectures and many scenic spots, great for photo-taking! Inside the park, there is a large shop selling the famous shiroi koibito white lover 白い恋人 chocolates, cookies, candies and souvenirs. Also they have scheduled candy-making sessions too. Interesting place to visit!"

"If you love cookies with chocolate, then this is definitely a  place you must visit! Shiroi Koibito park is also the location of the Ishiya Chocolate Factory in Sapporo, one of the oldest and most famous Chocolate Factory in Hokkaido and also Japan, well known for their famous white lover cookies and sweets. The tour is quite interesting and enjoyable with beautiful chocolate cup collection. The tour trip also shows the history of the factory and how their famous Shiroi Koibito white lover cookies are made.

Ishiya Chocolate Review
"It was like one of the attractions in Sapporo but you can buy Shiroi Koibito cookies anywhere in Japan (especially at the airport shops)."

"This is Ishiya patisserie Shiroi Koibito, where they make the famous white lover 白色恋人 cookie. Love this place with the beautiful lush roses and magnificent exterior with intricate details. We paid to walk through the production line but my kids did not want to make a cookie, so no comment on that. Many pictures opportunities and in the cold weather, enjoyed the chocolate soft cream ice-cream outdoor too. Parking is free."

"We visited this place thinking that it would just be a chocolate factory showing their history and how the chocolates 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 at how our favourite white chocolate cookies were made! Overall, this is a great place for families with kids to visit."

"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 have a schedule for that. I enjoy watching the cookie production. There's even a mailing service for your cookie at the retail store! But the service is not available during the weekend when I was there."
