    Nigata Pref. Nigatashi Chuou-ku Saiwainishi 1-2-6
    This is a specialty Russian chocolate store, which is a rarity in Japan. It is located on Prefectural Route 1, west of the JR Niigata Station. Russian chocolate incorporates Russian-style cream Pomadka, nuts and Russian-style jelly, among other ingredients. The chocolate is packed in a Matryoshka-design container, which is not only perfect as a souvenir, but also as a gift for the Obon Lantern Festival. The chocolate sold here is made with a recipe passed down from the previous owner, Kiyoshi Matsumura, who learned it from a Russian chocolatier in 1930. The chocolate has been made in the same way ever since.

    新潟のお土産は大体買ったと思っていましたが、ネットで見つけたこのお店。 新潟駅から歩いて行ける距離、住宅街に佇んでいるお店です。 若干値が張りますが(12種類1個ずつで1000円。ケース入りはその値段もプラス)、珍しいし、楽しい。 味も本当のロシアの物はもう少し雑な味かもしれませんが、そこはこちらのお店の手作りということもあり、ちゃんと美味しいです。 今回は自分用に買いましたが、少し豪華なお土産と...

  • Patisserie FrancaiseLait Deux
    Niigata Joetsu-shi Touncho 2-3-53
    A French bakery in Naoetsu whose name means Second Milk in French. The hope embodied in the name is that the treats from the bakery will only come second in sweetness and deliciousness to a mother's milk. A specialty of the shop is a bite sized cheesecake made with three types of French cheese and topped with the name of the shop. Despite its small size it has a reputation of satisfaction, filling your mouth with rich flavor. Along with their fresh sweets they also offer a wide selection of carefully made baked sweets and confiture.
  • Lievre Handmade Cake and Bread Main Shop
    Niigata Nagaoka-shi Misono 1-3-22
    The bread and cake bakery sits in a quiet residential neighborhood about five minutes' drive from Kita-Nagaoka station. Look for the green sign with a picture of a white rabbit. The bright, cozy interior offers a wide variety, including the usual square white-bread loaves, as well as snack breads, and cake. Their popular salty buns are mildly salted and buttery for the perfect mix of flavors, and are the shop's pride and joy. The bread is light and not at all oily, and its unique texture has earned it lots of repeat customers. They have a full pastry menu, as well, with custard-packed Rabbit's Tail cream puffs, cake rolls, and more.
  • Grande Pierre Oishi Main Shop
    Niigata Nagaoka-shi Yoitamachi Yoita 444
    "This western confectioner is marked by its chic brick exterior. They have made western style pastries based on their motto ""freshness is flavor"" without compromise since their founding in 1927. Their focus is on Guernsey Sweets, made using milk from rare Guernsey cows, of which there are only about 300 in all of Japan. This milk is marked by its rich flavor and light aftertaste. They avoid the use of added flavorings to preserve the charm of its natural flavor. This shop is a local favorite, with many people coming daily for their limited custard pudding and pie-crust cream puffs."
