Although you can technically get this traditional summer dessert all over Japan, it seems fitting to eat it in Asakusa, a neighborhood of Tokyo steeped in tradition. A mountain of razor thin sliced ice drizzled with milk and covered with matcha (green tea) powder, finally topped with a scoop of sweet azuki red beans. On the side, a little cup of kuromitsu, brown sugar syrup, to sweeten to your own taste. While there are dessert shops popping up that specialize in kakigori, many cafes will have this treat on their dessert menu during the summer months. No better way to beat the heat!
