Having a Taste of Heaven: Biting Into a Fluffy, Delicious Cloud

Forget the guide books and live like a local. A Japanese summer must is having "kakigori" (shaved ice desserts) to feel refreshed! We will let you in on a little secret, a shop that is frequented only by locals and already has quite the following. Why is that you may ask? Because this tiny shop offers a twist on classic shaved ice with a range of addictive flavours. Let's try "Yuki Usagi" in Sakura-Shinmachi, but let's keep it between us!

Feel free to follow favy!

Kakigori (かき氷) is a classic Japanese summer dessert. It is shaved ice usually covered in different flavours of syrup, such as strawberry or matcha.
It is light and refreshing during the scorching hot Japanese summer.
It is a summer must-try!

"Yuki Usagi" is an incredibly cute shop between Sakura-Shinmachi station and Komazawa-daigaku station. This little shop offers the most delicious, fluffy kakigori you can try.
It has a few tables inside, and a very cute welcoming terrace.
Also, the staff is very friendly.

A taste of heaven!

Caramel lovers beware, this is so addictive. If you share it with friends, you think you'll only have a few bites, but I promise you won't be able to stop.
The caramel had the right balance of sweet and salty and was so perfect.
You'd better get your own, who likes sharing anyway.

This kakigori flavor is salty caramel granola.
This original twist on the classic syrupy kakigori was simply delicious. It is covered with a creamy topping, dripping in salty caramel with granola to finish the whole thing.
Each bite makes you want more, but it's still surprisingly light and refreshing! It is so incredibly fluffy, it's like biting into a cloud.
Is this what heavens tastes like?
