Snow Brand Parlor Sapporo Flagship Store: Superb Ice Cream at a Long Established Sweets Shop in Sapporo!
Snow Brand Parlor (Yukijirushi Parlor) is a café operated by a famous Japanese dairy product company. The popular item that attracts many people at this store is the traditional ice cream Snow Royal.
In 1968 Snow Brand received an order by the Imperial Household Agency to create a “supreme ice cream” for the Showa Emperor for his visit to Hokkaido. It took Snow Brand two years to create the Snow Royal. Since then the ice cream has been sold at the Snow Brand Parlor as a limited item.
