“Eddy’s Ice Cream”—A Booming Ice Cream Shop With a Colourful Selection in Harajuku

08.August.2017 | FOOD / SPOT

Hi everyone, my name is Shiota and I am the Director at the MOSHI MOSHI BOX, the official Harajuku Tourist Information Center.

Today, I am tackling an enquiry that we have been receiving more of at the MOSHI MOSHI BOX recently. And that is, where is ‘that’ ice cream shop “Eddy’s Ice Cream” with the really photogenic-looking ice cream? Let’s take a look!

 

That Pink Building in Ura-Harajuku

Exit Takeshita Street and head towards the street opposite between “Murasaki Sports” and “New Balance,” down Meiji-dori, and make a right at Family Mart. Take a right at the first turn and you’ll be able to see the 1F of the pink building on your left. There must be a lot of you out there that know where to find the first floor of the second-hand clothes shop Santonibunoichi, right?!

 

If in doubt, or you get lost finding your way, then be sure to come and see us at the MOSHI MOSHI BOX.

It’s called “Eddy’s Ice Cream.” It was born in Harajuku and is a super-duper cute ice cream shop. The staff in there are really cute and stylish too in their matching uniform t-shirts♡

 

360° of Pure Photogenic Décor

The interior of the shop is pasted in pink and white. The colour of the walls is particularly something to highlight – the paint job is beautiful! It’s the same with the choice of lighting in the shop, white makes the surface of the wall look white. The shop manager even gives them the stamp of approval as “the best walls in Harajuku.”

 

Lots of Photo Spots to Snap Pictures

The décor in the shop was designed in such as way as to make taking photos fun. No matter what spot you choose to take your photo at when in Eddy’s Ice Cream, it will look gorgeous.

The most popular spot is by the pink phones. You can even hold the receivers of each telephone.

 

Ice Cream at Eddy’s—An Inevitable Heartthrob

There are already ice creams to pick from on the grand menu of Eddy’s Ice Cream where the toppings and everything are decided for you, but you can also customise to your liking – by picking from 10 different varieties of cones, 3 types of ice cream, and 13 toppings.

 

“I’ll take one the most popular ice cream, and one of the manager’s recommendations.” Upon ordering them…

TA-DA!

 

My heart skipped a beat. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to declare these ice creams as the personifications of kawaii. They should be the standard ice cream, with their toppings you can’t find anywhere else!

 

I’ve never seen an ice cream pursuing the true essence of kawaii as much as these!

This is the most popular ice cream on the menu – the “Unicorn” (¥1,200).

 

The milk ice cream is covered in pastel coloured cotton candy, and it even has a chocolate flavoured unicorn in the middle. If you eat the cotton candy and ice cream together they mix to create a satisfying and thick taste. It was a texture I have never experienced before. I highly recommend this one to people with a sweet tooth!

This is the manager’s recommendation, the milk flavoured ice cream – with the MOSHI MOSHI BOX initials made out of chocolate and much more. A truly customised MMB original ice cream!!! (¥1,150).

 

The flavour of the milk is both firm and refreshing, and the balance between the sweetness of the cookie and chocolate was perfect. We’d love for you to try the MOSHI MOSHI BOX ice cream yourselves too!

There’s also extra chocolate sauce on hand if you want to change up the flavour of you ice cream some more. It’s really nice that they’ve thought of everything.

 

Unmissable Popular Drinks!

The drinks at Eddy’s Ice Cream are pink too♡

 

The beverage on the left is strawberry milk (¥500) which has strawberry paste with bits to give it that fruity punch. The sweet milk that comes with it makes the perfect combination. The beverage on the right is lemon squash (¥500) which contains lemon peel and lemon juice. You can also choose from two colours – blue and pink.

The shop gets seriously crowded in the afternoon, so if you’re wanting to take some photos or do a photo shoot then you should aim for the morning or just before closing time.

 

Be sure to check out Eddy’s Ice Cream on your next trip to Harajuku!!
