Free Yummy Ice Creams!

After spending an amazing day (and night) at Shirakabako (白樺湖) in Nagano Prefecture, we were heading home. On the way back, just less than an hour from our hotel, we made a stop at Chateraise Hakashu Factory (シャトレーゼ白州工場), which is located in the middle of the forest in Yamanashi Prefecture. We saw it on the TV that they offer eat-all-you-can ice creams to whoever that come for their self-guided factory tour (工場見学). An offer we cannot refuse! LOLChateraise ice creamSince we visited the factory during the summer holidays, there was a lot of cars waiting in line just to enter the factory parking area! Surprisingly, it only took us less than 10 minutes and we were able to park our car.

The tour was pretty much self-guided, just reading information on wall displays, looking at machineries through glass panels… I am pretty sure everyone was there for the free ice creams. I know we were! And we were not disappointed at all, they were DELICIOUS! However, despite our ambitious appetites, we were not able to eat plenty. The kids and I only managed to chow down one each, daddy had two. SIGH, felt like a loser! LOL

If you do pass by the factory, you gotta try the ice creams! Highly recommended the Tai-Yaki one!

    There are a few Châteraisé patisseries in Singapore but they don’t seem to serve ice cream unfortunately. I admire you and your kids’ restraint, haha! Very sensible to stop eating when you’re full :P

      Haha not restraint, we were silly enough to go there straight after a heavy breakfast buffet. So “LUGI” ! So, definitely going back with a revenge LOL
