Kobe Milk Ice-Cream | Motomachi, Kobe | Japan

This store is located right at the entrance to Chinatown (Nankinmachi) in Kobe. The Nankinmachi entrance of the store seems to be more focused on puddings, while the back of the store (entry on the other side of the block) focuses more on ice-cream. Ice-cream is available in cups or cones. There's a small eating area available at the back side of the store.

Don't forget to take a few shots for Instagram before digging in!

Note: Many people are probably aware that walking while standing/eating is frowned down upon in Japan. While this is mostly true, there are certain areas and times of year where this rule doesn't really apply - think festivals etc. It's quite hard to find seating around Chinatown, especially if you're eating from a food stall, so it's perfectly fine to stand and eat outside. If you're in need of a garbage can, you can return the garbage to the store you purchased the item from.

If you're looking for other sweet treats in Kobe I recommend The City Donuts and Coffee, and the wonderful Isuzu Bakery.
