Finding home in Tokyo’s sumo town is this tiny little sweets shop specialising in fluffy shaved ice desserts. Kohiruan’s menu consists of classic Japanese kakigori toppings such as matcha, kuromitsu (brown sugar syrup) and kinako (roasted soybean powder), as well as some more unorthodox flavours including tomato, crunchy almond, banana tiramisu and lychee tea.
The unique touch that sets Kohiruan apart from other kakigori shops is the special taiyaki monaka (fish-shaped wafer) that comes nestled on top of certain orders. For an extra dose of sweetness, you can also ask for an additional serving of milk (¥200) to pour on your ice as you near the bottom of your bowl.
Do note that toppings change regularly with the seasons, so you’ll have to check out the shop's Instagram to find out what flavours are currently being served. During weekends, the shop often attracts long queues, so reserve yourself a spot by writing your name at the door.
