Shaved ice - Asami

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.

This weekend!

Eventually my husband is taking a day off and we are planning to visit somewhere near Tokyo.
The cherry blossom season is almost over but here comes spring...
Sorry the photos are blurry :P
