Not really into the sweet kinds of kakigori that are taking over Tokyo this summer? Then head for Shinagawa's Strings hotel, where adults-only versions of the shaved ice dessert are offered in the evenings throughout summer. You can choose from three kinds: Ham and Melon, Campari Mango and Shiokoji Salty Dog, each one served with a very special kind of syrup. All three sound perfect for cooling down in style after a hard day's work. The Strings's 26th-floor restaurant is also serving up a kakigori-themed tea set for those who have the luxury of free time in the afternoon: this ¥4,000 (plus tax and service) deal includes savoury bites such as wraps and scones, a selection of cakes and a tropically inspired peach kakigori, served in a tall glass with spicy syrup.
