Over at the MOSHI MOSHI BOX, Harajuku’s tourist information center, we are always asked about ice cream and soft cream shops. These cute and Instagrammable shops are currently experiencing a huge boom with the younger generation!


Here are 7 popular ice cream and soft cream shops that you can visit during your trip to Harajuku.


Eddy’s Ice Cream


Located in Ura-Harajuku, Eddy’s Ice Cream completely is pasted in pink and white. Wherever you turn to look, you’re going to want to take a photo. The grand menu of Eddy’s Ice Cream, where the toppings are already chosen, is super popular, but you can also customise to your liking – there are 10 cones and 3 soft creams to choose from as well as 13 different toppings. The most popular item on the menu is the “Unicorn” (¥1,200), a magical delight wrapped in pastel coloured cotton candy and milk soft cream. This one promises a new kind of sensation for the taste buds!

Nanaya (Aoyama Branch)


Nanaya sells luxurious gelato made using matcha sourced from Fujieda in Shizuoka. It offers seven varying levels of matcha intensity – level 1 begins with a more moderately sweeter flavour, but as you progress up the scale to level 7 the flavour of the matcha becomes richer and deeper. The no. 7 gelato is the most popular item and claims to be the most matcha intense flavoured ice cream in the world. It uses matcha that received an award from the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries. It boasts a deeply rich and bitter matcha flavour inside which lies a hint of refreshing sweetness.

Affogato (¥550), a definite recommendation to those people who find normal ice cream a tad bit boring. It’s made with rich wholesome ice cream that melts its way into strong coffee. Even people who aren’t adjusted to coffee can enjoy this one. What’s more is that “sorama” is a café situated away from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of Harajuku where time flows calmer, allowing you to take a breather. It’s a place where you can enjoy more “grown-up” ice cream.
