Shaved ice served with different toppings. Really pascionate owner


Wanting to do something summery, I went to the famous shaved ice shop in Jujo, which has been selected as one of the top 100 Japanese sweets shops. Speaking of summer, it's definitely shaved ice.

I ordered Amaou (seasonal only) and Hojicha Kintoki. Amaou had the sweetness of strawberries, and Hojicha Kintoki had a bitter taste from the hojicha, but when combined with the red bean paste, you could feel the sweetness, and both were delicious. I also felt that the ice itself was easy to drink.
The price is quite high, but with the recent shaved ice boom, famous stores are experiencing inflation, so I think it's about the same level.
I would like to go again.


I came to Jujo in search of natural shaved ice.

When I eat regular shaved ice, I immediately get nervous...

It didn't give me a headache and I enjoyed it to the last drop.
Maybe it's because the temperature of the ice, how it melts in your mouth, or the temperature of the red bean paste is perfect, or maybe it's because it's natural ice.
The syrup and red bean paste are also smooth and not too sweet!

How about a cup of ice to relieve your summer fatigue?
