Shiro-hige is the place all Studio Ghibli fans should go to. Said to be run by Hayao Miyazaki’s relative, the shop’s popular treat is the Chibi Totoro Choux, a cream puff made to look like a tiny Totoro. It’s the only place you can get it and a lot of other Totoro-themed snacks. When you slice through this profiterole, you’ll find a rich cream you’ll want to lick right off from its crispy crust.
