[Closed Down] ISHIYA CAFÉ
ISHIYA CAFÉ (イシヤカフェ) is a popular cafe based in Sapporo city, and has been opened since 2013. Ishiya Seika Confectionery (石屋製菓) that is famous for Shiroi Koibito Cookie (白い恋人) and Shiroikoibito Park (白い恋人パーク) runs it. Shops open a business in Chuo ward, Sapporo, Kita-hiroshima and New Chitose Airport. Meals, sweets and drinks are sreved. My visited shop is Sapporo Odori Nishi 4 Building Branch (札幌大通西4ビル店) facing underground city, and it is near Odori Park (大通公園). The branch looks relatively new. Ishiya Shop is on the 1st floor, and the Ishiya Cafe and Candy Labo are on the 1st basement floor. The cafe is large, and counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals. Unfortunately, they have been closed a business since June 2022.
Shiroikoibito Park (白い恋人パーク) is an amusement park established in 1995 in Nishi ward, Sapporo city, and is a head cookie factory that Ishiya Confectionery (石屋製菓) is famous for white lover cookies (白い恋人). European-style buildings like famous movie Charlie and Chocolate Factory are popular, and about 700,000 tourists come. They got 1st place in Japanese tourist attractions with Trip Advisor “Best Japan Summer Photogenic Tourist Attractions 2018 from Point of View of Posted Photos by Oversea Tourists”, so the tourist attraction is exquisitely popular with the oversea tourists. Ppoular illumination is held in a winter, too. The nearest station is Miyanosawa Subway Station, and it takes about 10 minutes on foot. Read More
Odori Park (大通公園) is in the very center of Sapporo city, and is located between Sapporo Station and Susukino. Offices and commercial facilities are built around the park, and it is just at very center of the big city. But 92 types 4,700 trees such as lilac, Japanese elm and cherry tree are planted, and fountains and flower beds are built, so the park is well-known as a place of relief for Sapporo citizens as well as tourists. The park has been chosen as one of The 100 Best Roads in Japan (日本の道100選), Japanese City Park Best 100 (日本の都市公園100選), The 100 Best Townscapes (都市景観100選) and Japan’s Top 100 Historical Parks (日本の歴史公園100選), so it is one of the most famous parks in Japan.

Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is “Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)” in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido’s population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Read More
I visited here around 14:00 on a weekday. A lots of customers enjoyed their meals and drinks. After asking a waitress about cafe’s recommendation at a cash register desk, she replied me “That is Hot Cake (ホットケーキ)”. * The Hot Cake refers to a pancake in Japan. They served 3 types (Chocolate Hot Cake, Milk Hot Cake, Berry Hot Cake) of the Hot Cakes, so I ordered the Berry Hot Cake with sour and not too sweet. The price was JPY 1,080.
About 10 minutes later, pancakes and fresh cream were separately served. The pancakes had double decker cakes, and it was considerable quantity, and was very sweet. I enjoyed eating it when I neutralized the sweetness with the sour taste of the berries and strawberries. By the way, customers can pour berry syrup and maple syrup over the pancake or put the pancake into the berry syrup and the maple syrup. Do as you like. Thanks for the tasty pancake!
