In Hokkaido, Japan’s land of dairy, the leading confectionery manufacturer, Rokkatei, produces delicious desserts that have garnered national acclaim. The company’s long-time favorite, Marusei Butter Sand (a biscuit sandwich made with rich buttercream), is arguably the most famous of all Hokkaido souvenirs. The main shop is located in Obihiro, central Hokkaido, where you can find exclusive specialty items like the Saku Saku Pie. This crispy horn-shaped pie has a delightfully flaky crust and is bursting with fresh, creamy custard. Its best-before period is a mere three hours, so make sure you tuck in there and then! There are several other Rokkatei stores in Hokkaido, but for the ultimate experience be sure to check out the main store in Obihiro.
