Italian restaurant Dégustation in Seijogakuen gives kakigori an extremely fancy spin with its unique and unorthodox flavours. Seasonal ingredients are sourced from farmers and local producers all over Japan, and you can really taste the quality of the produce in the kakigori.
Some of the interesting combinations you might come across include the Jamon de Teruel, a shaved ice topped with blue cheese milk, honey, pineapple and cured Spanish ham. There’s also the Summer Vegetable Garden with a mixed herb-infused milk, seasonal vegetables and basil sauce.
More dessert-like sweet flavours are also on the menu, like the beautiful ume plum kakigori accented with red shiso powder, plus the Emerald Imperial featuring mint milk and fresh cantaloupe.
Some of the kakigori is served with an alcohol pairing, but you can also order the desserts without a drink. Reservations are a must and can be made online here.
