Five flavors are available: matcha (powdered green tea), wasanbon (a type of sugar produced in Japan), melon, strawberry, and, the newest flavor, blancmange (a French gelatin dessert).

This shaved ice has a fluffy cotton candy-like texture, made with natural ice frozen not with a freezer, but with cold from nature, and its syrups made with handpicked ingredients.

A lavish amount of Japanese ingredients are used for the syrup and toppings, like fruit pulp, jelly, shiratama (rice flour dumplings), and yokan (a jelly-like dessert). As you eat this shaved ice dessert, you’ll be surprised at how many ingredients are inside.

Any flavor and topping combination will be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and cool you down from the summer heat.
