Those worried about their cholesterol levels should stay away: this layered shortbread cookie (sometimes known as 'butter sand', short for sandwich, in Japanese) shop inside Tokyo Station uses copious amounts of fresh Hokkaido butter in its creations. It's run by the team behind Bake Cheese Tart and deals in luxurious cookies that consist of butter cream and caramel wedged between two layers of sweet, buttery shortbread. They make for a great souvenir, so if you've forgotten to bring something for your friends, relatives, boss or colleagues and are at Tokyo Station, this is a good pick. You can even check out the pressing process with your own eyes, as the cookies are made on site here.
