かき氷(ごおり) is a Japanese shaved ice dessert flavored with syrup. Apparently 25 July is set as the "shaved ice day".


July and August are the hottest months in Japan and かき氷 is one of the best way to cool down on hot days!


Syrup can be fruit flavoured syrup but sweetened green tea and condensed milk are often used as a sweetener. Sometimes cooked azuki beans (red beans) and/or pieces of fruit are added as garnish.


If you go to Japan in summer. Try one!
