Sweets Forest in Jigyuoka (スイーツフォレスト) (website) is in a well-to-do part of Tokyo near Daikanyama. It’s a collection of sweets makers under one sugar-coma roof. Sweets Forest is not like Sweets Paradise with a tabehoudai (all you can eat) system. Instead it’s a pay as you eat system of moderately priced desserts. Expect to spend around 1,000-1,600 yen ($10-$16) to get your fill.
The quality of sweets is definitely much higher so you might have the side effects of feeling fancy. I definitely recommend going during their seasonal themes. Each patisserie and dessert maker puts out their own special dessert for that theme. But it seems they’re always doing a theme. January’s was warm desserts. Sounds amazing!
Sweets Forest Sakura Themed Special Desserts
The macaron cookie from Masayume Sakayume was filled with cream, red bean and sakura blossoms. Very delicious!
Sakura themed jelly x custard mix from Hong Kong Sweets. Was simply amazing!
Mix-in Mixcream’s sakura season waffle was a plain Belgian waffle topped with red and sakura mixed in ice cream.
I always start off my Sweets Forest foray with a savory crepe from Merci Crepe. Their ceasar salad crepe with a soft boiled egg is so delicious!
Sweets Forest Christmas Special Desserts
The macaron and berry Christmas themed boot from Berry Berry was so-so. The tiny berries were amazing, but the boot was filled with cream. Just cream. YUCK
A bear shaped pudding from Masayume Sakayume I think was Christmas-gentei (seasonal)
Pancakes are such a boom in Japan so macaron maker Irina did a chocolate, pistachio and raspberry themed Christmas one.
Not seasonal but the Kulon from Hong Kong Sweets is so cooling and not-too-sweet. The little pieces of fruit always taste fresh. It’s bestie Alice and mine’s favorite non-seasonal dessert.

All the cut-out fall forest decor is there year around. The first image is of Hong Kong Sweets.
Yes during our sakura season visit there was a sumo wrestler there with his handler (man in the plaid). Sumo wrestlers are a bit rare to see, but during tournaments you’ll see them more.
If I’ve sold you on Sweets Forest to visit here’s a map and my Sweets Forest recommendations.
Hong Kong Sweets everything I’ve gotten from them is amazing! Berry Berry can be hit and miss and sometimes Nature-Marche is a bit too cake and filling, but it’s usually tasty.
