Appearance of Building

My visited place is the Sweetpia Garden along National Route 241 this time, and it is near Otofuke Obihiro Inter Change. The building has 4 stories above ground and 1 story below ground, and its apperance looks like a western stately home. About 6 hundred thousand people come. A confectionery sales place, a shop, a cafe and a confectionery making experience studio are on the 1st floor, and popular scrap of Sanporoku (三方六の切れ端) is sold, too. But a line is expected. A factory is on the 2nd floor, and a passway for a plant tour is provided on the 3rd floor, so visitors can obsreve the factory along the passway freely.

    Garden Crepe

    They also serve sweets limited to the Sweetpia Garden only here. I planned to eat a garden crepe in those. I asked a shop clerk about sweets' recommendation at a cash register, so she replied to me "That is Garden Crepe with Orange Flavor (ガーデンクレープオレンジ風味)", and I ordered it immediately. The price was JPY 432. Visitors could use the cafe freely, so I decided to eat it at the cafe.

    Garden Crepe with Orange Flavor

    The main feature was fresh fruit and plentiful cream. A sponge cake like a swiss roll was wrapped with a soft crepe. The Garden Crepe was not sweeter than it looks, so I had finished eating immediately. By the way, water, coffee and adzuki bean tea were available at self-service counter. I was happy about that. Thanks for the tasty crepe!
