Cuteness to the max! Check out these kawaii Totoro Cream Puffs sold by Shirohige’s Cream Puff Shop in Tokyo!
These Totoro Cream Puffs are so super delicious!!
I will definitely go back to have them again, and they are so irresistably cute! If you are visiting Japan, you do not want to miss out this delicious sweets!
Located within walking distance of about 3mins from Setagaya-Daita train station on the Odakyu line, this store is not difficult to find. I mark it out on Google Map here. You can use Hyperdia to plan your trip, just search and add in your start location and ending station (Setagaya Daita) and it will plan the different possible routes for you.
Nestled within a sweet looking cottage like house, Shirohige’s Cream Puff Shop has a take-away counter on level 1 and some alfresco sitting.If you are travelling during the cooler months, it will be really nice to enjoy the cool breeze outdoors too.
On level 2, it belongs to a cafe space named Toro Cafe where lovely cafe food is served. The cafe also allows diners to take orders and eat the Totoro Cream Puffs from Shirohige’s Cream Puff Shop.
Upon entering the store, you will see cute Totoro decorations and displays. Even the toilet has a Totoro plush toy!
Check out the super cute Totoro Cream Puffs lining up in the takeaway counter. They offer seasonal flavours, so do check out what they have when you visit. Some of the mainstays include the Custard and Chocolate flavours etc.
If you have no time to dine in the store, you can buy some and bring back to the hotel or along with you. The store provides ice packs for your journey.
The Totoro Cream Puffs are really cute, see the different ‘headgears’? They represent the different flavours!
I also took a sneak peak into the kitchen (naughty me). They use egg trays to hold the puffs – how creative and smart!
I decided to dine at the cafe and chose to be seated upstairs. Take the flight of stairs and head up. There will be staff to take your orders (including the Cream Puffs) upstairs.
Since it was meant to be brunch and I was feeling greedy :P haha I ordered a salad (small size) and two Totoro Cream Puffs, the original custard and the seasonal limited edition Marron (Japanese chestnut) flavours.
The salad came first, and was pretty good, very fresh and light Japanese wafu dressing.
But the most important part of my meal was the Totoro Cream Puffs.
Here we have the Totoro Cream Puff (Original) Custard flavour on the right and the Totoro Cream Puff Marron flavour on the left.
And look at those vanilla beans specks!!! I love to see that in sweets ;D The custard was so creamy and delicious.
But what impressed me the most, was actually the Marron (chestnut) flavour. While the colour is plae and looked so similar to the Custard flavour, wow, that chestnut flavour really popped! I also love the chestnut bits in the cream.
Highly recommend both of them and definitely the Totoro Cream Puff Marron flavour!
I also did buy the Chocolate Cream flavour as take away but the chocolate flavour was mild. I prefer the Custard and Marron flavours.
So yes, if you are travelling to Tokyo, I highly recomend you find some time to check out Shirohige Cream Puff Shop and enjoy the delicious Totoro Cream Puffs!
