[Ryugetsu Toskachina Branch in Obihiro] Slat Sanporoku Cake and Toskachina Tokacho Have Moist Texture
Ryugetsu (柳月) is a long-established confectionery store based in Otofuke town located in the northern direction of Obihiro city, and has been estbalished by Mr. Hideya Tamura (田村 英也), the founder, in the Obihiro since 1947, and is well-known as the 2 most famous confectioneries in the Obihiro together with Rokkatei (六花亭). Sweetpia Garden (スイートピアガーデン) has been built in the Otofuke since 2001, and the head office functions moved to the Sweetpia Garden. It is a flagship shop with a factory, too. Branches and shops open a business in the Obihiro, the Otofuke, Makubetsu, Kushiro, Nakashibetsu, Sapporo, Ebetsu, Tomakomai, Muroran, Asahikawa, Kitami, Chitose, New Chitose Airport, Obihiro Airport, Hakodate Airport, Kushiro Airport, Asahikawa Airport, Memanbetsu Airport, Wakkanai Airport, Narita Airport, Singapore and so on. They serve about 300 types of confectioneries, and Sanporoku Cake (三方六), a long seller standard confectionery, is famous in particular.
My visited place is Toskachina Branch (トスカチーナ) along New Yayoi Road (弥生新道) in the Obihiro, and is near JGSDF Camp Obihiro. Their western-style building with a conbination of red bricks and woods is stylish. It is large, and a confectionery sales place and a place for custmers to enjoy foods and drinks are on the 1st floor, and a restaurant is on the 2nd floor, so they also serve meals. By the way, a highway bus "Potato Liner (ポテトライナー)" runs between the Obihiro and the Sapporo, and a express bus "North Liner-go (ノースライナー号)" runs between the Obihiro and Asahikawa. Besides, Rent-a-car can be rented around Obihiro Station and Obihiro Airport.
Obihiro (帯広) that about 170,000 people live is the 6th largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and is one of regional hub cities of the Eastern Hokkaido area. It has flourished as the center of the Tokachi district. The Obihiro is also a stockyard for agricultural products in whole Tokachi district, and Potato, Beet, Wheat and Chinese Yam are famous as a local product. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 30 degrees in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to nearly -20 degrees in a winter. It has a large temperature gap, but it has less snow relatively in the Hokkaido. Therefore skating is popular in the winter. Mr. Hiroyasu Shimizu, an olympic gold medalist, come from the Obihiro, and there is much competition population of the skating. Read More
Sanporoku Cake and Toskachina Tokacho Chocolate Gateau
I heard that they serve Sapouroku Cake Parfait (三方六のパフェ), and I visited here around noon on a national holiday, so the building was crowded with a lots of cutomers. A waiting number ticket for the restaurant was distributed, but 30 groups of people had already waited. So I gave up this time.
When I looked around the store, I found Sanporoku Cake and Toskachina Tokacho Chocolate Gateau (トスカチーナ トカチョ) limited to the Toskachina Branch, so I bought those. As for the prices, the Sanporoku Cake (5 pieces) was JPY 597, and the Toskachina Tokacho was JPY 129. I decided to eat those at a resting place in front of the building. Both were moist cakes, and were not too sweet. I want to eat the Sapouroku Cake Parfait the next time!
