Where to buy Shiroi Koibito Chocolates? 2007/5/18 14:10
Narita
Hi,
I've heard that the Hokkaido Shiroi Koibito chocolates can be bought in Narita Airport. Does anyone knows the shop is at near which boarding gate?

Thanks!

It seems to be sold at ANA Festa shops in the terminal 1 building on floors 2 and 3 of the No.5 satellite:

And at BLUESKY shops in several locations of terminal 2:

Shiroi Koibito in Tokyo? 2008/7/16 02:37
The other time when I was in Tokyo, I searched for Shiroi Koibito. Most of the people told me that there is no other places in Tokyo that is selling it. Only in Narita Airport

T-boy and Jen,

While you won't find Shiroi Koibito in Tokyo, identical "Langue de Chat" (I think that's how it's spelt) cookies can be bought pretty easily at regular supermarkets and sometimes 7-Eleven stores.

That's what I like about Japanese culture sometimes.

When I was traveling around Japan I found that regional specialties or omiyake are only sold within that area. Not only the prefecture but sometimes limited to the production region.

They just would not budge if you try to convince them to sell it anywhere else, even if it means loss of potential sales (although probably at the expense of goodwill if it can be found anywhere else).

So whenever you go anywhere, you're bound to be surprised.

Having said that I'm very sure I'm seen the famous Shiroi Koibito chocolate biscuits sold in some Japanese department stores in other asian countries. Probably grey-imports or are they licensed to do so? Wouldn't have a clue.

Shiroi Koibito 2009/3/4 23:05
Dear all,

Shiroi Koibito is not only one of the best cookies in the world, it is also a cookie that my wife loves!!!

So far, I found them in Hakodate, Aomori -- in the Jusco Mall on the eastern side of the town -- and in Narita Airport, south wing. Do not hesitate, just ask people, the cookies are so well known that they know almost for sure.

Note however that although they used to be sell in Tokyo -- Ginza -- this is not true anymore.

Honnestly I do not know why this is impossible to find them anywehre [or almost].

So tired of it, I just wrote to the company Ishiya telling them that I live in Europe and would like to import those cookies.

Cheers

Here's the link for it http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B001G7I57Q/ref=pd_luc_sim_01_03

I got mine from Narita Airport, you can actually find it before or after you check in. I got mine at this shop called Little Akihabara (Near the internet lounge) which I am sure you won't miss as it takes up the space of 3 shops. They sell other Japanese goodies for you to bring back too, and all in its pretty tin packaging.

Found in Kansai Airport 2011/2/24 09:41
There's a prominent shop selling these biscuits in Kansai Airport. I discovered it when departing Japan. It was after the security checks and near the other duty free stores.

Hope this helps those not flying out from Narita.
