Shirohige’s Cream Puff Factory is a little cafe that offers Totoro shaped cream puffs, cookies with shapes of items in the anime ‘My Neighbor Totoro’, and beverages. As for the cream puffs, custard and chocolate flavour is available daily. Strawberry cream during January to June. Caramel banana, January to April. Matcha, May to December. Peach, July to September. Raspberry and cream cheese, September to December. Marron Chestnut, October to December.
I went half an hour before their closing time. Big mistakes. The only flavours left was custard and matcha which was not bad at all. In fact, I was extremely lucky because I got the last Matcha Cream Puff and 5 minutes later a lady came in and bought all the cookies and cream puffs that were left. Phew.
The cream puffs were crunchy and airy filled with flavoured cream. The custard cream was smooth and sweet with a hint of vanilla. On the other hand, the matcha cream was a little thicker yet still creamy. The matcha flavour was there but I prefer it to be stronger. Nonetheless, they were adorable, delicious, and fun to eat!
Would I visit again? Yes! For Totoro!
