Treat Yourself With The Best Matcha Kakigori In Tokyo!
Kakigori is the Japanese term for shaved ice, and it is a must-eat dessert for the summer season! But instead of eating any kakigori, why not try some matcha kakigori to enjoy a taste of Japan?
Feel free to follow favy!
Zenkashouin (茶庭 然花抄院)
Zenkashouin is a Japanese tea cafe located inside Hikarie, which is directly connected to Shibuya station. Their main store is located in Kyoto, but you can enjoy Kyoto-style matcha desserts and high quality Japanese tea at the Shibuya store as well. Their matcha kakigori comes with matcha flavored ice, azuki (red beans), matcha ice cream, and shiratama (mochi balls). You can choose from a selection of tea such as matcha, sencha, etc.
Shimokita Chaen Ooyama (しもきた茶苑大山)
Shimokita Chaen Ooyama is located 2 minutes away from Shimokitazawa station. It is THE go-to place if you want the best matcha kakigori. But, it is definitely crowded and you should expect a long wait to eat this. This matcha kakigori is made into an espuma, which is a Spanish term for "foam" and this prevents the ice from melting until the very end, as well as bringing out a super rich matcha flavor. If you have time and are a true matcha fan, I would definitely recommend this place.
Kagurazaka Saryo (神楽坂茶寮）
Kagurazaka Saryo is located 5 minutes away from Kagurazaka station. It is located in the backstreets of Kagurazaka and is a Japanese tea cafe with many matcha desserts. You can only eat their matcha kakigori from around mid June, and it comes with azuki (red beans), vanilla ice cream and shaved ice covered with their homemade matcha syrup. As this cafe mainly serves matcha desserts, their matcha syrup is definitely rich in taste and you can enjoy the pure taste of matcha when eating this kakigori.
Cha Cha No Ma (茶茶の間）
Chachanoma is located 6 minutes away from Meiji Jingumae station, and a Japanese tea sommelier will serve you the best Japanese tea and desserts. From June to August, they serve kakigori flavored with various types of Japanese tea. But, their most popular is the Strawberry Matcha Tiramisu Kakigori, which comes with a matcha flavored shaved ice and 4 other toppings. The toppings include matcha sauce, mascarpone sauce, strawberry tiramisu cream and matcha powder. Enjoy the change in tastes with the toppings and the perfect combination of strawberry and matcha!
Tsujiri is located inside Daimaru Tokyo Department Store, which is right outside the Yaesu North Exit of Tokyo station. They serve different types of matcha parfaits throughout the year, but the matcha kakigori is something you can only enjoy during the summer. They have over 5 different types of matcha kakigori, which come with different toppings and flavors of ice cream. Enjoy the rich taste of matcha with matcha kakigori at "Tsujiri"!
If you are a fan of matcha, you will definitely enjoy these matcha kakigori! If you are in Tokyo, visit some of the cafes this summer for some refreshing and tasty matcha kakigori!
