I will be visiting Hokkaido and Tokyo, including the Shiroi Koibito park - I suppose it makes more sense to buy the biscuits from Haneda airport before I depart right? Will there be enough stock? :/

Bought this from Kyoto, can find at Kyoto station Isetan B1.

Quite nice wrapping. 1,260 yen before tax, I bought them yesterday, it can last until 20th Dec.

Depend what time you arrive at Haneda and they do not stock all items or quantities. Best to buy in New Chitose Airport

Bought the assorted shiroi koibito this trip, but still find white chocolate nicer than the milk chocolate.
