Got a scoop of the Level 7 matcha with a scoop of houjicha. Both were great - texture was smooth and both tasted like perfectly brewed tea. Level 7 can be a bit intense if you’re not into tea or are sensitive to bitterness, but...More

I am pretty curious thanks to the article that I read about this shop. I am a matcha lover originally, so I buy the no.7 Matcha Gelato, also dubbed as the creamiest and highest quality matcha gelato. NOT DISAPPOINTED. Have to say that I really...More

An ice cream store located in the street north of Senso-ji, the ice cream was very good, I highly recommend getting the number 7 flavour.

Being a matcha fan residing in Malaysia, it is sometimes a little difficult to not get disappointed and let down by some so-called matcha ice-cream over here. This level 7 premium matcha is the purest I've tasted so far. I was jokingly telling my husband...More

Matcha ice cream was very good. I loved that they had all the levels of matcha. Definitely worth the trip. My only criticism is that the store is very small and narrow. When my husband and I stopped in, it was very crowded. We were...More

Had the level 3 matcha ice cream and the black sesame ice cream. It was so so so good. So different from the ones I was able to try in Europe. Way better

Matcha is popular overseas recently. I see many reputations concerning Matcha through a variety of media. You can feel real Matcha in Japan if you come here. This Matcha is ice cream. But there are 7 levels in richness. Level 7 looks like a real...More

We came to Suzukien after visiting the nearby temples, and since we had some spare time we thought we could try this ice-cream shop. We queued a bit as usual in Tokyo, while in the meantime taking a look at the flavors we could choose...More

Premium no.7 is like okoi cha(very strong matcha tea served at special tea ceremony) made into icecream. I thought this is only available at suzukien but i noticed other shops at kamakura sell similar icecreams. If you can't take this strong flavour, there are less...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

When I went there, there's no such thing, just go in, follow the queue poles, choose the flavor, then pay.
