    Fun way to spend a morning
    I'd seen on trip advisor that this was quite highly-rated as a thing to do while in Sapporo, so we headed over to it one morning. If you have visited other chocolate factories, such as cadbury's world in the UK, this is pretty different and more low key. It was interesting to look inside the operational factory as part of the tour. You also get some cute exhibits to entertain younger (and bigger?) kids. The park and the buildings are quite nice to look at and there are plenty of sweet photo opportunities around. I thought for the cost it was quite a fun morning out.

    Cute Park , Pastries Galore
    Great place to visit any season of the year. The time we went there , just encountered so many visitors, but it was festive. History suggests that the founder should be making chocolate but decided to focus on pastries or cookies instead . An exhibit on how it was done was rather superficially demonstrated. But I suggest buying their specialties at the store or having soft ice cream or coffee at their coffee shop.

    A great family morning at the Chocolate Factory
    We traveled all the way from Shin Sapporo with our kids to visit the chocolate factory. The entry price was reasonable, and we found the crowd to be manageable, which made for a pleasant experience. We highly recommend taking the bakery class, which was more of a pastry decorating class, but still enjoyable for both kids and adults alike. While the factory tour showcasing the chocolate manufacturing process was interesting, it didn't stand out compared to other attractions. However, we were enchanted by the outdoor garden, especially with the snow adding to its beauty. One downside was that the chocolate prices at the factory were the same as those outside, so we didn't feel the need to purchase any. Overall, it was a lovely way to spend the morning with our kids, and we left with fond memories.

    Fancy chocolate factory
    Nothing special for elderly but for kids and young couples, this place is good for taking selvies, pictures and simple visit to learn how they make their famous chocolate cookies. There is a simple activity as well for your kids to learn to decorate their own cookies. It will be around JPY 1,200 per 30 mins (inside the chocolate factory building). To enter the chocolate building (they have mini museum inside as well) you have to pay tickets that cost around JPY 800 for adult and JPY 400 for kids. They also have a special chocolate store for you to buy gifts for your loved ones. Some neat cafes are also there but quite crowded because this place is also a tourist destination. Other than that, nothing so special about it.

    Flowers!
    We weren't planning on going to this chocolate factory but our guide noticed that I was taking lots of flower photos so she suggested we make a quick stop here. We didn't go into the building, I just admired the blooms and took lots of pictures! This was in mid-May.

    Perfect for anyone with sweet tooth
    Part chocolate factory, part theme park. The place continues to be a must stop for many visiting Sapporo. It is not bad place to spend a few hours as there are plenty to see and it’s a great place for shooting photos for your social media posting. They even have several cafes both indoor and outdoor for visitors to rest and recharge. Entry to the garden area is free but you would have to pay admission into the building. The rose garden area is especially beautiful when all their flowers are in full bloom. The entry ticket is reasonable and it comes with a free sample of their famous white chocolate cookie. The self guided tour is informative, as one gets to learn about the origins of chocolate and given an opportunity of behind the scene view on how their popular products are made. At an extra fee, one can also sign up for a make and decorate a cookie or cupcakes workshop, which at the end of the session you can then bring back your creation to eat. Personal favorite has to be their cafe on level 3. It’s has great dessert menu with seasonal special and if you managed to get a window seat, it offers a nice view of the garden and it’s a perfect spot to watch the clock tower performance. For those looking for normal food or just peckish after all the walk around, they do have a cafeteria style eatery at level 2 which has a decent menu for both finger food and mains. After being immersed in all things chocolate and sweet is still not enough. There are 2 retail shops just before you exit the place. One offers more bakery items like bread and spreads, while the other is more for confectionery items. The latter is a sugar heaven, as it has assortment of their sweet and chocolate products all beautifully wrapped as gifts and available in different qualities making it perfect either for sampling or as souvenirs. But would recommend just buying those items that are limited to the park itself as will save you the trouble of having to carry your purchase about, as all their items are priced the same and available at both the airport and retail shops in town. Overall find the place great for young kids and anyone with a sweet tooth.

I’m a massive fan of the Shiroi Koibito white choc biscuits, so was super excited to visit the factory location whilst in Sapporo. I was a bit underwhelmed. I’ve been to the Cadbury factory in Tasmania Australia which was big and they used to take you through the factory, I don’t think they do that anymore but the experience was much better. Here, you only see the tiny operations through glass windows which is self guided. There were no specials or 2nds sold in the gift shop, all were at set prices as per every other shop. The gardens and flowers and buildings were all ok. Nice choc ice cream outside from a van vendor. But I wouldn’t make a day of it, more 1-2 hours, entry fee a bit steep at 800 ¥ for what it was.

we were in a hurry, so didn't pay for the ticket to see the factory. but the outdoor garden and the shop are good enough! a lot of photo opportunities with the flowers and architectures. the clock tower show is an old tech, but still quite interesting. the bakery is the best - don't forget to try the puff. ice cream so so
