Shizuoka-based matcha sweets purveyors Nanaya, famed for their Premium No. 7 gelato that's been certified as the ice cream with the world's highest matcha content, have hardly been very active in appealing to Tokyoites: until August 2016, their only outpost in the capital was a simple counter inside Asakusa tea shop Suzukien. But now they've finally taken the next step and opened their very own shop in Aoyama, near Aoyama Gakuin University. In addition to the fabled No. 7, Nanaya Aoyama stocks six other varieties of matcha ice cream ranked in order of richness (just like at the Suzukien shop), as well as matcha daifuku sweets, matcha cookies and even matcha chocolate. If green tea is your cup of tea, so to speak, this one should not be missed.
