On the last day and last hour of our trip to Japan for Hanami, we decided to do one last thing. We heard of this famous shaved ice dessert and since we happen to be in Kagoshima, the origin of this item, we decided to look for the original shop for this dessert atTenmonkan known as Mujaki.
With only an hour to go before we need to be at the airport, we walk down Tenmonkan but failed to locate this shop. In desperation, we met some students and using a variety of gestures, we managed to get our message across but they could not describe the direction to us in English. They then decide to bring us to the shop. How nice these Japanese are as hosts!
We were there with 20 minutes left. We ordered a shaved Machar with red beans which was heavenly and a shirokuma which is a shaved ice with condensed milk and appeared like a polar bear. Nothing to shout about but something to bring back home in terms of memory.
The shop is located in an covered alley on the 2nd floor and is an ideal place for people watching if you have the time.
Good for the experience and for dessert lovers, worth finding and salivating for.

Finished dinner nearby and decided to make a trip to this recommendation. Ordered based on image saw on TripAdvisor and it taste good. Saw other customer ordering this as well. There’s only a single size and it’s good for sharing by 2 person.

Tsate is great and not expensive.

My wife love this dessert so much. Easy to go.

But many people if you like to try, may need to wait for the seat.

We ordered two sets of shabu shabu with pork. It comes with udon and vegetables. It’s only 1380 yen person (promotion), which is worthy to try. Of course, the most important is to eat the signature ice dessert. We do like this special dessert at Kagoshima.

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.
