Ishiya is a famous chocolate maker at Sapporo. Their factory is opened for visit and is actually more like a theme park than a factory. The buildings are are built with classic European style and the factory tour lead to many interesting facts about chocolate making. There are also exhibits of a large collection of fine china tea cups and saucers. Of course the chocolate and cakes are all very tasty. It’s in the suburb area of Sapporo and just a short train ride by metro from city centre. One can easily spend a whole afternoon there, tour the factory and laze around for a cup or coffee or tea with some fine chocolate and cakes.
