I've had kakigori in Taiwan but the texture of the ones we had in this shop is so much better. We visited as a group of 4 and ordered 2 kakigori and 2 drinks. Imho, their 1 order per person policy is totally understandable since...More

We waiting for a while to be able to sit down but it was worth the wait. They have some odd flavor combinations and we loved it!

Great location right beside station entrance. It's in the intersection, you can't miss it. There's a one order per person policy, so if you're planning to share, one of you can order a drink. Nothing special about the shaved ice although it's still good. You're...More

We were a group of three friends going out for some desert. Two of us ordered, except the last one because he has diabetes and was fine tagging along. We got our deserts and when we went upstairs to find a place to sit, we...More

This is a new level of ice cream. We choose the one with the coffee taste and it was amazing. Maybe a little bit pricy for ice cream and it was a long waiting line (but you get used to it in Japan) but it...More

Food was excellent, but... staff said that we must order something more per person, because order cannot be shared. Didn't realize that we cannot eat one portion of ice cream by two of us...

Dear Katarzyna, Thank you for visiting us. Sorry our order policy was not made clear. One order per person can be a drink and shaved ice can be shared. We apologize for the miscommunication. We hope to see you again.

First the good: the ice monster pudding itself is spectacular. It's expensive granted, but I can't pretend it didn't leave wanting to come back for more. Now the bad - each traveller has to order an item. The most sensible thing to do is order...More

I went on a very hot day and I had to wait almost 30 min before being able to enter. I already went to Ice Monster in Taiwan and I wanted to try their restaurant in Tokyo. I took the "Mango Kakigori" (shaved ice) and...More

This dessert is delicious. The shaved ice is smooth, slight creamy and light. At ¥990, the portion is big and certainly good enough for 2 people. The most popular items on the menu are mostly priced at ¥990~ . Shop is very popular. It has...More

Tried this place on a hot day with the kids and we weren't disappointed. Best recommendation is to share one between two people - they are huge serves. Not an everyday dessert, but certainly a fun and tasty one.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
