October 19th, 2014
Kinotoya (きのとや) is a famous confectionary store based in Sapporo city, and is run by Kinotoya corp. Mr. Akio Naganuma (長沼 昭夫) is a company chairman, and has established it since 1986. He also held the office of Sapporo Sweets Kingdom Promotion Council (スイーツ王国さっぽろ推進協議会). The head office is in Shiroishi ward, and some branches such as Odori Park Branch (大通公園店) open a business in the Sapporo and New Chitose Airport. They serve a lot of famous sweets such as Sapporo Nogako (札幌農学校 * Agricultural College) Cookie and Cream Cheese Souffle (クリームチーズスフレ). Milk produced in Hokkaido is fully used for the sweets.
My vivisted place is the Odori Park Branch in Chuo ward, Sapporo city. It opens a business at Bisse Sweets (ビッセスイーツ) near Odori Park. At the Bisse Sweets, famous sweets shops in Hokkaido such as Paume (Sapporo), Apple Works (Sapporo), Bocca (Date), Machimura Farm (町村農場 * Ebetsu), Tsukisamu Anpan (月寒あんぱん * Sapporo) open a branch, too. A lot of table seats are provided at the Kinotoya Odori Park Branch, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals. But it is crowded with customers.
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. Article is here
I visited here to eat Omelette Parfait that is a limited dish only at the Kinotoya Odori Park Branch. Customers can choose a cup of coffee or a cup of an original tea, the hot one or iced one is selectable. The combo price was JPY 650, and the price of the only Omelette Parfait was JPY 380. * In addition, they are carrying out sweets and food buffet for 90 minutes. A reservation is required for this.
The Omelette Parfait decorated with fresh cream and fruits was large. Soft and fluffy omelette dough with sweetness of the fresh cream and sour of the fruits was very good. The texture of Turkish Delight accentuated, too. I visited here with an ex-senior that came from Tokyo. He was pleased with the reasonable price, too.
