Want to know more about the Totoro Cafe in Tokyo?
The Totoro Cafe, also known as the Shiro-Hige’s Cream Puff Factory, is one of my favorite cafes in Tokyo. It’s located in district of Setagaya, in a calm an quiet neighborhood away from all the hustle and bustle of Tokyo.
This cafe is popular for its Totoro-themed cream puff pastries, which are not only cute, but also delicious.
For you who don’t know, Totoro is a famous Japanese character from the movie called “My Neighbor Totoro” from 1988. It’s one of the most popular characters in Japan.

What to expect
The Shiro-Hige’s Cream Puff Factory is a lovely cafe and bakery located in a calm area of Setagaya, Tokyo. It’s more of a normal cafe rather one of those crazy theme-cafes that you can find in the city.
What makes this cafe so special is not the interior or decor, but their cream puff pastries that are shaped like Totoro from the Japanese movie called “My Neighbor Totoro”.
These cream puff pastries are not only super cute, but also delicious. Somehow the puff pastry with raspberry and cream cheese tasted like Swedish pancakes with jam and whipped cream, which is something I love!
You can sit inside or outside by one of the garden tables. If you’re going when its a bit warmer, I can recommend siting outside because it was very cozy.
Whether you’re a Totoro fan or just a fan of cream puffs, this is a place for you!
How much does it cost?
The prices are reasonable at the Totoro Cafe. A coffee cost around 500 yen (4 euro), and a cream puff costs around 500 yen as well.
Their main dishes cost between 1000-1200 yen (8-10 euro).
Down below you have a picture of their menu, so you can see what to get and how much it costs.
Is the food and drinks good?
Yes! The coffees/drinks and cream puff pastries we had was very good. I especially liked my cream puff with raspberry and cream cheese, it was super delicious.
Alex had the cream puff with chestnut flavor and a matcha latte, and it was good as well.
We haven’t tried the food at this place so I cannot comment on that. However, it looked and smelled really good!
The interior of the Totoro Cafe
As mentioned, this is not a themed cafe, so do not expect too much. It’s just a cute and cozy cafe where you can go for a coffee, pastry, or some food.
The main thing about this cafe is the cute Totoro cream puffs, and not the interior.
Shop some souvenirs
After your visit you can visit the shop / bakery and buy some eatable souvenirs. They sell a variation of Totoro themed cookies that you can buy as a gift for someone you love.
The cookies are very cute, and I’m sure they’re delicious as well.
