Shiroi Koibito Park is a must-see romantic place for every visitor, and this is the birthplace of White Lovers Chocolate. It is a factory and a castle garden at the same time.

Take the Tozai subway line and get off at Miyazawa station. Along the way, you will see a lot of signs heading towards the Shiroi Koibito Park Factory, and the stairs are labeled in blue. You don’t have to use the navigation to get lost. The White Lovers Chocolate Factory is 10 minutes away from the building where the subway station is located. The first entrance to the factory is not a ticketing entrance, but a small hall where children’s interest classes are held on weekends.
I couldn’t read the writing on the door, so we decided to go in first and ask the staff since it was too windy and snowy. It seemed to be a hobby class to teach children to draw and paint. The staff at the park were very welcoming and after understanding what we wanted, they led us to the ticketing area. Each ticket comes with a Shiroi Koibito Park’s chocolate chip cookie and a booklet, which is not very useful. After entering the pavilion, we saw a fountain with flashing lights and a staff taking pictures of the visitors. The staff patiently explained to us that we could take a group photo with our camera, but we had to take one with his camera first, and then go to the second floor to choose whether to buy the developed photo.
The photos were put in a small souvenir book, and after looking at the photos we were quite satisfied, my friend and I each bought one. The girl selling the photos also said that we could take another one for free in the outdoor garden. The pavilion is beautifully decorated everywhere, even the different staircases are tiled differently. There is also an exhibition hall of antique porcelain inside the pavilion. There are various small metal boxes where accumulator pins are placed. On the top floor of the exhibition hall, there is a cafe where you can try the beautiful cupcakes and the famous Shiroi Koibito Park soft ice cream. It’s not easy to walk around for half a day with the accompanying gifts, so if you’re not in a hurry, you can actually choose again at the airport, which is basically available at all major airports.
Take the subway directly from Odori Park (Sapporo City Tozai Line, Miyazawa Line) and get off at Miyazawa Station, then walk for about seven or eight minutes to Shiroi Koibito Park Park.
From a distance, you can see a huge four-story rectangular factory building, scattered with blue and yellow colored lights. It is the small snowmen sitting in the windows that are unique.
Cold and clear door to go in, spit a bit before you find that there is something else inside. Miniature fairy tale world, disguised as a giant shuttle in a short hut. Also from the small windows in the attic of the house will emerge from the soap bubbles overflowing with girlhood.
Inside the building, the first floor is the sales floor about the Shiroi Koibito Park factory desserts. You can buy some souvenirs to take back, but there are also broken down and sold one by one, foodies to satisfy their cravings.
The registration for the Shiroi Koibito Park factory tour is open until 17:00 on the day, we went late and registration was closed. The first thing you need to do is to ask the receptionist and run out in tears. really want to smell the freshly baked milk.
The second layer is a variety of retro toys, Astro Boy, Ultraman.
When I came out and wandered further in, I found a group of people with barbecue grills baking rice cakes under a double-decker bus.
That’s pretty much all there is to Shiroi Koibito Park
