At the Sapporo JR Station, we decided to check out the Basement Department Store where the baked goods are. We wanted something sweet. They have one section that sells Le Tao cheesecake which is famous in Hokkaido. Otaru is actually the place I would get it since they have a lot of stores there and they are probably based there. They have one store in Tokyo but that’s about it outside of Hokkaido. I love Japanese pastries in general but there’s something extra special about pastries and breads in Hokkaido, maybe it’s the milk.
My cousin bought one cream puff because he wanted just to try it out. They even put it in a box with spoon and ice. That is some awesome packaging and customer service. He would have been happy if it was put in a brown paper bag.
