Next place on my list is Rokkatei flagship store, about 10 minutes from the hotel. I've already bought almost all my souvenirs, the bulk of which is from Rokkatei, but I just wanna see how the main shop is like.

You can spot the Rokkatei building in the background.







Most of the items here are what you get everywhere else, from the airport to every other souvenir shops to the Otaru store. However, they have a cake counter too.







Level 2 is a dine-in restaurant offering their signature sweets as well as food like pizzas and pastas.

Level 2 of Rokkatei. On the right is the restaurant.







There are also several other tenants in the building. Wanted to grab a coffee when I saw a cafe listed in the directory. Unfortunately they were closed.

Ksi care to share y u wanna visit the hokaido uni?? Anything special? Or just personal preference
Perhaps visiting university is not even on the last of everyone’s itinerary, but in fact, many universities around the world are very interesting. I have visited Taipei, Taichung and Chiangmai’s university, will do the same for other cities too.

Another restaurant in the building. This looks quite ATAS.





Aside from Rokkatei, Yamaha takes up the most of the building. I think there's 2 levels for shopping, and a few others for classes and performances.

Didn't wanna appear like an uncouth person in such a classy place, so I seeked permission before snapping around. Granted.









I think this alone exceeds my entire travel budget for the trip liao.

Made my way down to level 1 and about to leave but something caught my eye.



You know those famous Marusei cookies that I (and basically the whole of Hokkaido) am obsessed with and raving about? THEY HAVE AN ICE-CREAM SANDWICH VERSION HERE. This, according to them, is not available at most stores, including Otaru.







Divine. I bet most foreigners won't know about this because Rokkatei is SO COMMONLY AVAILABLE who actually visits the flagship shop? Go go go!

Made my way to the next stop. But first, I had to pass by the underground passage. Cleared more Yen, of course.

Cookies from Stella's. Bought a bag from them previously but decided to get more. Went rogue and bought every single flavor.





Not sure if I bought a certain amount worth or it's for every customer, but I get to participate in a lucky draw dip box. Won myself another piece of cookie (which at time of posting has been given out to a really helpful ANA counter girl).

Next up, Books Kinokuniya!





Hokkaido's Michellin Guide!



Some risqué magazines. These are priced from ¥400 onwards. Tiagong if bare all one more expensive.







The place is gargantuan. Almost running out of superlatives for word to describe the sheer size of places.
