Forget ingredients imported from Italy: this café near the Tama River serves up gelato made exclusively with Chofu-grown fruit and veg, while the milk comes from the only remaining cattle farm within this western city's limits. And as is usually the case, eating local pays off: Daisuki's ice is aromatic and fresh, with flavours constantly changing to accommodate the seasonal produce on offer. Our favourite is the strawberry gelato, a crisp but satisfyingly rich creation that tastes even better than it looks and comes served in a waffle cup baked on the premises. Getting to the café from central Tokyo isn't exactly convenient, but those making the trip will be handsomely rewarded.
