I just can't keep up with this hot and humid weather in Tokyo. Better than cold but it's too hot. For those who are like me, here is something to cool you!!
This is kakigoori(かき氷), shaved ice, a popular sweet in summer. Flavored with matcha(抹茶), sweetened azuki beans(あずき) and condensed milk, sweetness and bitterness are mixed together perfectly as you pop into your mouth. It's really really yummy!
Other common flavors are strawberry, lemon, melon, and blue hawaii. But matcha is the best!
