How is “Rokkatei Sapporo Honten” like?“Rokkatei” is a confectionary company established in 1933 in Obihiro.
“We aim to be a local ‘snack shop’, and produce confections that are purchasable every day, flavors people never get bored, various products to enjoy choosing what to have for the day, and a warm atmosphere just like home.” The public relations of Rokkatei told us.
They have shops in Obihiro, Sapporo, Kushiro, Hakodate, Furano, and Asahikawa for now. Confections of Rokkatei are very familiar to us who grew up in Hokkaido, as everyday snacks, and as presents.
In particular, “Rokkatei Sapporo Honten” opened in 2015.
On the first floor, they sell various confections, both western and Japanese, such as a long seller and their signature product “Marusei Butter Sand”, and “Hirobiro”, which was specially created as a memorial confection for the opening of Sapporo branch.
