I found out about this cafe after seeing a photo posted on Instagram showing the beautiful shaved ice creations, and I immediately put it on my to-go list. This cafe is conveniently located in the Shinsaibashi area which is a well-known area in Osaka for shopping, food, and entertainment.
The cafe is quite small and seats only around six people, so it's probably a good idea to call and make a reservation, especially in the warmer months. I had a chat with the owner of this cafe who told me that while there are some staple items on the menu, many of the items change with the seasons. I visited this cafe just recently and was lucky enough to catch the tail end of the strawberry season.
I look forward to visiting again soon, especially now that summer is here!
Unlike some shaved ice shops that only open in the warmer months, this cafe is open all year round, but be sure to check their Instagram page or Google Maps for opening days/times, as they frequently change.
