10D9N Spring Japan Trip: Totoro Cream Puff

I know that it is normal for everyday to hunt for food that they really want to try when they travel overseas. In the case of my high school friend's food hunt, she hunted high and low for a cute food in Japan named Totoro Cream Puff. I looked at her with a degree of skepticism. I mean, how can you make a Totoro in cream puff version?

Apparently one is possible at Shirohige's Cream Puff Shop.

Shirogihe's Cream Puff is actually belonged to one of the family member of Hayao Miyazaki, the creator of many great animation movie at Studio Ghibli. The small bakery is not easy to find and there are times where we really needed to ask people nearby, including a police officer. Shirogihe's Cream Puff is tucked away in a residential street and hence, this makes finding it kinda challenging. However, our effort did not turn into waste as we were able to secure the last two cream puffs of the day (nearly left with broken heart, really).

The cream puffs are delicious and delicate just like other Japanese pastries. The cream puff with the leave decoration has classic vanilla cream as the filling while the cream puff with the sakura petal has strawberry cream. There are two other flavors which are banana and chocolate cream. As the cream puff is very popular, you may want to consider coming here very early during the day. One cream puff costs 440 Japanese Yen. 

Where is Shirohige's Cream Puff Shop located?

The shop is located within 3 minutes walk from Setagayadaita Station or 7 minutes walk from either Shimokitazawa or Shindaita Station on the Inokashira line. I suggest to use your Google map from the station to find the way to the shop.
