Top 4 Shaved Ice Desserts You Must Try This Summer

08.June.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

Hi everyone, this is Midori from MMN’s Editorial Department.

It’s really feeling like summer right now in Japan and as it gets hotter, more and more places are starting to sell one of Japan’s most beloved summer desserts; Kakigori (flavoured shaved ice, usually with delicious and luxurious toppings).

 

Today I’m going to tell you about new Kakigori flavours that are out this summer. ♪

 

Kori Yuki to Natsu (Ikejiri-Ohashi)

Last year, Kori Yuki to Natsu opened in Nishi-Ogikubo. This year, there’s a fresh new shop in Ikejiri-Ohashi which is close to Shibuya. The ingredients used at Kori Yuki to Natsu are specially selected and the kakigori is carefully made. The shop in Nishi-Ogikubo is a great hit so there ‘s no doubt the new shop is going to be just as popular.
