Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
When the warm weather comes around, we all need something nice and cold to keep our minds off the soaring temperatures. Convenience stores (or konbini, as it's affectionately known locally) are ideal for that quick cool down, as they offer not only an air-conditioned respite from the summer heat outside but also a wide range of cheap and cheerful cold treats and desserts, from ice cream to frozen mochi and more. We had a hard time narrowing down this delicious list as we went on the hunt for the very best frozen specialities, so we won’t judge if you want to try them all in one go.
