Japan’s Cookie Sandwiches Will Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth Cravings
Reward yourself with these delicious treats!
The perfect harmony created by combining crispy cookies with an exquisite-tasting cream is what makes cookie sandwiches a popular snack among tourists and locals in Japan. These cookie sandwiches become even more appealing when they’re made by a patissier who also specializes in delicious cakes.
In this article, we introduce three kinds of cookie sandwiches created by skillful patissiers, starting with “Cuisson,” a French confectionery shop in Fujisawa that opened last July.
2-5-10 Mirokuji, Fujisawa City, Kanagawa Prefecture
Open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily except on Mondays and Tuesdays.
How to get there: It’s 5 minutes by bus from Enoshima Electric Rail Line Fujisawa Station South Exit going to Kamakura, a 9-minute walk from Kawanahashi
Cuisson is an old house in a residential area in Fujisawa that was renovated into a modern Japanese patisserie.
Cuisson is a patisserie owned by Mr. Tatsuya Kawasaki, who served as the last patissier at Nishiazabu's French restaurant, Georgian Club.
At the shop, there is an eat-in space where you can enjoy plenty of sweets to satisfy your cravings.
The shop’s 6-piece Cuisson Sand (¥1,680) is the perfect souvenir gift for your friends and family. The photo shows the strawberry, caramel-chocolate, and milk-flavored cookie sandwiches. Making online reservations for the product is recommended since its availability is limited due to its popular demand.
The Cuisson Sand consists of cream sandwiched in sable and topped with nougat. It is about five centimeters in diameter and is available in seven to eight different flavors. Three of these flavors are sold in sets of six. The strawberry cookie sandwich has a hint of almond and its sable is a combination of raspberry and nougat.
CHIGASAKI’S ILE DU CHOCOLAT CHIGASAKI BRANCH
ILE DU CHOCOLAT

Ile Du Chocolat opened its new branch last October 1, 2018.
Ile Du Chocolat’s trademark is their shell-shaped pie cake called the Nama Shell Pie. Their main branch, which has been operating for many years at the south exit of Chigasaki Station, was powered up and opened at the Higashikaigankita 3-chome.
The inside of the store and the kitchen were made wider, allowing the customers to shop easily and more comfortably.
The shop’s Choco Witch has a rich and elegant taste.
The Choco Witch (¥220 per piece) is a homemade rum raisin and Italian ICAM's high-quality?couverture chocolate cream sable sandwich. Its sabre has a bittersweet taste and is made with cocoa powder from Ecuador produced by the Ariva Company.
KAMAKURA’S 3-JI NO OYATSU KOBO
3-JI NO OYATSU KOBO
3-17-13 Omachi, Kamakura City, Kanagawa Prefecture
How to get there: It’s 20 minutes by foot from East Exit of Enoshima Electric Rail Line Kamakura Station
3-JI NO OYATSU KOBO’s pointed roof stands out in the residential area of Kamakura Omachi.
3-JI NO OYATSU KOBO is a sweets shop that looks straight out of a fairytale book. It doubles as shop owner and patissier Ms. Ichiko Yaegashi’s home premises. The shop is surrounded by many different plants, which gives the place an extraordinary feel.
Caramel Sand Horohoro Cookie
The Caramel Sand Horohoro Cookie (¥250 for 2 pieces) is the most popular among the store’s baked snacks. It consists of egg-free cookie dough that is moist and easy to eat and some caramel cream that is characterized by a smooth texture. Part of what makes this cookie sandwich a hit is the fact that neither the cookie dough nor the cream is overpowering each other.
