Winter is coming to Japan and we can definitely feel it! So there is nothing more relevant than a top list of…ice cream shops!
I mean, everyone is always up for some sweetness, so no matter the season and the weather, those places are always there for you to enjoy!
So this is my personal top 3 in Tokyo:
1 – dolci cafe SILKREAM, located in Shibuya, it's the official cafe for the Cremia ice cream. It has encountered a huge success in Japan thanks to the very rich taste of the ice cream itself on top of a langue de chat cone, every single bite is amazing!
Where: a few minutes walk from Shibuya Station
2 – The Zoo (Doubutsuen): this one is the perfect spot for all Instagram lovers. It opened in Harajuku in 2017 with the concept of being the smallest zoo on earth and serves animal shaped ice creams that look amazing!
Where: a few minutes from Meiji Jingu Mae Station
3 – Nanaya: more traditional flavors are served here, as this shop is serving matcha ice cream, with matcha coming straight from the Shizuoka Prefecture. There are 7 levels from mild to rich flavored to choose from, so which one would you get?
Where: 10 minutes from Shibuya Station
There are, of course, many more places around the city so this ranking is very likely to change in the future, nevertheless I would recommend to stop by them if you get the chance!
Just bear with the summer heat for a little while longer because Otsukimi, or the Mid-Autumn Festival, is right around the corner. Along with it, some special limited-time foods are also released around many Japanese restaurants and fast food franchises to celebrate the season. Although it might be a bit early, let’s look back on popular Tsukimi foods Japanese people love to enjoy on this occasion in previous years!
Japanese noodles are known around the world. I mean, who doesn’t love digging into a big bowl of ramen? You’ve probably also tried– or at least heard of– udon and soba noodles, too. But the Japanese noodle universe is vast and uncharted, so today we’re focusing on a lesser-known Japanese noodle: somen
Japan has so many amazing drinks with unique flavors. With new products being available in Japanese supermarkets and convenience stores weekly there is too much to try!
