I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Aisu!

Long before we ever thought we’d be living in Japan someday, Cute Husband told tales of a wondrously delicious place in Japan called Ice Cream City.  Once we knew we’d be living here, it was definitely on our “Japan Bucket List.”  Ice Cream City has over 300 different flavors of ice cream {many of them highly unusual!}.  So when we found ourselves on an 88 degree Saturday in September with nothing else planned, off we went!

{please note Little Cutie’s ice cream skirt she wore in honor of the occasion!}

We were greeted at the doors!

And then we began to peruse our choices.  Soooo many choices….Corn Ice Cream?  Maybe Sea Urchin flavored? {this was Cute Husband’s choice, believe it or not!}

Next we found Garlic, Fermented Soy Bean and Wasabi ~ sure to clear your sinuses and cool your palate all in one bite!

Then things got really adventurous as we found Fried Noodle, Curry, Caviar, Saury {a flying fish}, Silk and Viper!

We all picked a few choices to sample and made our way to a table to snack.  I’d heard they sold Pearl Flavored where random lucky customs found a small pearl in their ice cream, but there was none to be found today.  Here The Cuties are with Grape, Melon, French Fry, Honey, Hot Cocoa, and Sea Salt.

No one else was brave enough to try the Uni but Cute Husband, but he was a happy man.

With full bellies we were ready to walk some more!

  3. How great, for you, that they have the English translation next to the Japanese writing. Wow that is a bunch of wild flavors. Some I would avoid though. lol
