You can buy a box of Nishigamo Cheese and Chocolate Souffle cakes, and choose how many you want of each cake. The box sizes are as follows: for 10, 15, 20, and 30 cakes respectively.
Note that their main product, Nishigamo Cheese, has to be eaten soon. They are good for three days if refrigerated, and for around two hours in the bag you get for free with an ice pack. If you buy a cooler bag they are good for around four to five hours. So they don’t make for good souvenirs to take back home but are great if you eat them right away or take them to your hotel fridge in the cooler bag.
The cakes may not have a long best before date, but the cookies do, so if you want some souvenirs, get cookies!
