To be honest, this wasn't on my initial to-do list, but after reading rave reviews, I decided to come and I can understand the hype. This is so delicious! It's very healthy too as it's packed with fruits. But the shaved ice itself is so yummy. This is a fantastic business opportunity by the way, to import this concept.

Kagoshima's famous Shirokuma desert can be eaten at several locations but this is the most popular one due to its easy location in the middle of the city. It's actually a full service restaurant if you want a full meal but many also come simply to eat the desert. There are many imitators and similar deserts but the price and portion size is good.

I recommend the baby size if you don't know how much you want. They are quite large and no thats not an exaggeration. There are about 10 flavors and are topped with fruits, red bean roll slices, and several other sweets. It's a great summer treat in the blazing heat of southern Japan.

It may not be everyone's favorite desert but it is a famous treat in Japan. Coming to Kagoshima, the origin of the desert and having one is part of it's appeal which draws so many tourists.

got the huge special ice, it was huge couldn't finish it with 2 people. The ice was super sweet, and featured candies, fruits etc. However it wasn't anything special, I've had better ice in Asia. Overall, it was just ok.

Ordered a regular size Shirokuma (white bear) to share with my wife. The sweet milk filled snowball was as big as a child's head, and decorated with fruit and jelly. It was good fun to carve away the big snowball bit by bit, into mouthful of cold sweet milk.

I visited here based on travel book's recommendation. I need to queue for a while for a table. I ordered the mango ice and it tasted good. But not very special as I can taste similar ice in HK!
