A necessity for the hot Japanese Summers
Found just about everywhere in Japan during the summer is the standard treat of flavored shaved ice.
Summer festivals are great places to find this treat offered in many different flavors and colors and can be difficult to decide which to choose.
Japanese cafes’ offer it in a green tea flavor topped with sweet bean paste and is referred to as ‘Uji-kintoki.” The more expensive version of this treat involves using natural melt water from mountains.
So, to avoid the ‘ice cream headache’ please enjoy it slowly while enjoying friendly conversation.
