Mariposa

Seiun

Feb 3, 2017

Mariposa is a confectionery shop located at the corner of Niseko-hirafu district, where you can find clusters of condominiums.

Their specialty: muffins and scones – my favorites!

The shop has a red and yellow signboard; a nice contrast to the charming wooden building it’s a part of. I feel that the look is partly why customers are attracted to this place.

The shop’s owners are a friendly couple who will greet you at the door. Once inside, you’ll find an array of baked confectioneries (from 380 yen) at the counter.

The couple’s warm hospitality and the lovely buttery aroma from their home-baked confectioneries create a very homely atmosphere.

Their baked goods are really fresh. If you order the cream puffs (one of their bestsellers), they will only be filled upon your purchase. This keeps the cream puffs crispy on the outside!

Be warned though, there are only about 10 seats inside. Hopefully, you’ll be lucky enough to find a space. If you’re not in a rush, it’s a great place to relax and unwind.

If you can’t find seats, fret not. You can always takeaway – they make amazing gifts for families and friends!

多くのコンドミニアムが建ち並ぶ「ニセコひらふ地区」の一画にある、マフィンとスコーンのお店。木造で趣のある建物ですが、それとは対照的に、入り口と看板は赤と黄色のカラーリングが可愛く目を引きます。

店内に入ると奥さんと旦那さんが出迎えてくれ、目の前のカウンターには、ずらっとたくさんの焼き菓子(1個380円程度~)が並んでいます。

バターの良い香りで溢れた店内は、二人共気さくな奥さんと旦那さん、そして手作りの焼き菓子に囲まれ、とてもアットホームな空間となっています。
人気No.1のシュークリームは、なんと、注文を受けてからクリームを詰めてくれるタイプです。購入してからすぐ食べると、サクサクの食感が損なわれずに美味しく頂けますよ。

店内には10席程度ですが喫茶スペースもあるので、時間がある方はそちらで一休みしながらマフィンやスコーンを楽しむのもいいですね。観光で訪れ、近くに宿泊しているという方は、お部屋で待っている家族や友人へのお土産としても最適ですので、ぜひ皆さんと楽しく召し上がってください。
