Niseko Cheese Factory

By 21st March 2009 August 27th, 2013 Uncategorized

Kondou Takashi was born in Monbetsu in the very north of Hokkaido. He loves cheese and used to work in the deli section of a supermarket, but eventually became bored of selling somebody else’s product, so he decided he’d learn how to make his own. Takashi-san went to school in France for two months to learn how to make cheese. He then spent a whole year looking for a place for his factory – he chose Niseko because it was close to Sapporo, the dairy farms are small and the grass is rich in minerals making for excellent quality milk. He makes a wide range of cheeses and is constantly adding new products, the next being cheese pudding and fromage. The factory is at the T-junction of Routes 343 and 66 near Higashiyama. Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. www.niseko-cheese.co.jp.
