We visited Nagatoro area in Chichibu, Saitama the other day and went to the local hidden gem - Asami Reizo, a Japanese cafe famous for its shaved ice (かき氷).
Nothing can be better than having delicate natural shaved ice made from spring water in the Japanese yard in a warm day. I was just so happy that we found this place!
We ordered White Peach and the Kuromitsu Maccha Azuki. The shaved ice just melt right away while I poured the Kuromitsu syrup over it.
Definitely worth the trip if you have a car and have a chance to visit this area.
