I really hate Tokyo’s summer. Especially I’ve stocked in Tokyo so long since the pandemic, but there is the best part of staying in Tokyo in summer, though. It is about Kakigori, flavored shaved ice 🍧 is ONLY available in summer! You won’t see these if you come during Sakura season or autumn leaves season.

I have tried so many modern creative flavors of kakigori, but these are the two flavors that I’d be eating every summer, strawberry and matcha. It is all ice with syrup, condensed milk, and a couple of mochi balls!

Kyoto has beautiful matcha Kakigoris and here are the best of my favorite places!
