You might miss this ice cream shop if you’re not looking hard enough. Sharing a space with a hair salon in Nakameguro, John’s Ice Cream offers unique and inventive flavours that are not commonly found in Tokyo. Expect peculiar creations such as amanatsu orange with black pepper and olive oil, black chocolate bamboo charcoal, and boozy concoctions like cognac with fruit and nuts. The flavour selection changes on a regular basis, so the shop’s Instagram to see what’s in store.
While the unique flavours are definitely worth a try, John’s is also known for its OTT ice cream creations, topped with colourful sprinkles and sugar cookies courtesy of cookie artist Cookie Boy. It costs an extra ¥250 for a cookie or ¥200 for sprinkles and other toppings.
