Magical Experience!
Feb 2020
A Must Visit for chocolate lover! we re came in winter season and the scenery was really wonderful!. We took a short tour to the chocolate factory and browse their chocolate and souvenir shop! You can find all shiroi-koibito food products as souvenir for family (kinda expensive though, make sure you choose wisely)

After that were taking lots of photos of their mini wonderland and had relaxing on their outdoor cafe. Their hot chocolate and white-chocolate popcorn are a must buy!

Magical paradise! Fun time for the family
Nov 2019
It's a magical winter paradise especially during winter or Christmas period. We went during early November, we still managed to admire the beautiful landscape around the park. We took a tour inside the chocolate factory. It's like a dream come true. Almost feel like we were inside Charlie & The Choc Factory. Plenty of fun things to do especially for young children with lots to see and do inside. You can see how chocs are made as well, admire many miniature collectable toys such as planes, cars, motorcycles and so on. Once we went outside, it was already dark, and the whole park was filled with colourful Christmas lights and decor. The snow fall around the park made it all so magical and it made us feel like a kid again. Christmas carols were being played and you wished that it was always like that all the time.

Excellent experience!
Oct 2019
This is definitely a must-see for everyone - tourists and locals! Visited the park with family.

Pros:
1) Its a mini wonderland of sweets, pocket gardens, and amazing afternoon show for kids.
2) The short walk from the train station to the park was cool and relaxing, approximately less than 15 minutes.
3) The factory tour was educational plus they give you a piece of the original biscuit for free!
4) The souvenir shop was wonderful - all sorts of Shiroi Koibito food and novelty items, plus the candy factory was also there! Can shop till you drop!
5) Toilet was impeccably clean, like Japanese toilets always do.
6) The park has enough seats to those who just want to relax, the ice cream shop was the best - imagine Shiroi Koibito in a cup plus hot chocolate!
7) You can bring home a photograph of you and your family - taken with the park's online camera.
8) Nice to go there after lunch because of the show in the afternoon. Perfect to watch it with lights.

Cons:
1) During late afternoon around 5pm, small insects appeared in the park and all the way until the train station. Not sure if its because of the season. It was quite annoying considering we had a toddler with us. We had to walk faster to the train station.

Real life winter wonderland
Feb 2020 • Friends
Went here in February. Unfortunately, we got there in the evening so it was closed but we enjoyed walking around the park area. The lights are beautiful. The music is magical. And it started to snow, light fluffy snow. We couldn't resist getting some Hokkaido soft serve from the stall, it was delicious. Then went inside near the bathrooms to warm up lol. You can by the chocolate in many locations so didn't feel like I missed out of that.

Visit with your kids
Feb 2020 • Friends
My tip is for you to go here at night when they turn on the lights. It is like their mini theme park for kids.

Admission to view a floor of the factory thru glass
Feb 2020 • Family
Only activities there are DIY (for pay). Kids walked around, looked thru the glass, looked at some art and that's it.

Best part was outside for photo ops.

I've included a photo of the factory so you can save your money...

“A feeling of Satisfaction”
Dec 2019 • Family
The chocolate factory was a winter fantasy land. Great place to take pictures, lots of excitement around, kids having a great time. It was particularly beautiful at night.

For some, the best part was the outdoor gardens with Christmas lights all aglow. For others, the factory tour was interesting and the best part. Myself, the cookie factory was just a viewing station with four different windows giving different views of the workers making the white chocolate cookies. It wasn’t worth lining up 20 minutes for the tickets. The cookie box tag-line says “a feeling of satisfaction”. I wasn’t feeling satisfied from the factory floor viewing. Five or 10 minutes seeing the factory is all that is needed.

My recommendation is to forego the factory tour, visit the small gardens and have high-tea at the cafe.

Makes shopping a family friendly activity
Oct 2019 • Family
While the primary objective of visit for most visitors is to buy the range of merchandise available, the company has installed a lot of park decorations and activities to keep the old, young and adults occupied. It redefines the shopping experience, and we got to view their extremely safe and efficient manufacturing process for some of their flagship products such as the biscuits and cake roll.

Beautiful Place and Polite Staff
Feb 2020 • Family
The public area is free entry, the staff were consistently courteous and the environment was beautiful. visitors can bring back a stamped image and the staff were attentive and topped up the papers for stamping when it ran out. we reached there at 6pm and most of the demonstrations on making chocolates and sweets were over. we hope to visit this place again.

Enchanted Chocolate Fairyland
Dec 2019
Visited the famous Shiroi Koibito Park (also known as White Lovers Theme Park) as our families love chocolates. We knew it's a tourist trap and weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised it turned out to be quite enjoyable.

The whole place was decorated like a fantasy land with Tudor styled European architecture, miniature houses and huts for the little kids to play, and lots of snowmen and Christmas lightings. When night falls and the entire place lights up, it looks like a fairytale winter wonderland! It was beautiful and definitely Instagram-worthy.

The park entry is free but you have to pay 600 yen if you want to join the factory tour. There is also a section where you can see how candies are made. The only thing that spoils the experience is the souvenir shop is so crowded it is like a marketplace. Perhaps there were several tour groups there at the same time.
