Kakigori, or shaved ice, is a summer favorite in Japan. Naniwaya offers a good variety of Japanese sweets and their shaved ice is especially popular. The matcha one has sweet red beans inside it covered with sweet white bean paste, which are the best combination with its matcha syrup. You would not be able to stop digging it with your spoon.
