okay now i have your attention .. this is seriously the best ice-cream you could wish for plus excellent and reasonably priced food and great selection of teas and gifts.
The Macha parfait is the boast of the shop and at 30cm is a Japanese version of knickerbockerglory. Be ready for a far less sweet taste, and a combination of textures, including mini cornflakes but if you are accustomed to japanese flavours this is heaven.
be prepared that the hot drink offered free after eating ice cream is ume kobucha - salty seaweed and plum tea !
The torokeru daefuku are a mouthful of bliss -
Staff are super helpful. You can sit facing the carpark and see Mount Ariake.
With all of this going on and in, you don't want to end badly, so be warned, the loo is a washerlet and you need to know that the flushes are the little buttons on top of the panel!
Take care leaving the car park, as you exit straight onto the main road.

I couldn't resist another visit to this Japanese Sweet Shop, their Macha and Dango plate is to die for. This place specialises in Green Tea flavoured ice creams and deserts but also have other choices. They have a full range of boxed sweets in Western and Japanese style sweets, do try their green tea flavoured soft ice creams if not try their Mont Blanc inspired ice cream, a mixture of chestnut puree and ice cream -divine!

Thank Alex J
