Shiro-Hige’s Cream Puff Factory: The Totoro Bakery!

While I couldn’t go to the Ghibli Museum because it’s quite expensive and you have to make reservation months in advance, I made my way to Shiro-Hige’s Cream Puff Factory (白髭のシュークリーム工房) to try the famous Totoro shaped cream puffs.

It’s a little out of Tokyo but it’s worth the trip. Here is the address: 5 Chome-3-1 Daita, Setagaya City, Tokyo 155-0033, Japan.

There’s also a small restaurant connected with the bakery. As much as I wanted to have lunch there but after seeing the prices, I only had enough to buy my Totoro cream puffs.

Shiro-Hige’s shop was small. If you were expecting a café, this wasn’t it. It’s a quickstop shop where you would need to take you purchase to go unless you were planning to sit down and eat at the restaurant upstairs. There are chairs and tables to eat outside but it’s patio seating for the restaurant, not the bakery.

Inside, it’s decorated with Totoro photos and small crafts. It’s really cute to look at the signed art and the collectible items on display. As soon as you walk in, you get smacked with that freshly-baked-cream-puff smell.

While I only bought 2 cream puffs, the Totoro Bakery has many other flavors available!

I was on the fence to buy this cream puff because Japanese custard is different from American custard but I decided not to. I totally regret not buying it!
