Japanese Soft Cream Ice Cream

ソフトクリーム

There are many reasons to like Japan - the people, the culture, the history - all noteworthy, indeed.

Of course, there are many small things that are special too.
What do you think about soft ice cream?

In Southern California, USA, it is not a widespread treat. The usual flavor is vanilla, and it is a thrill if one can get chocolate or chocolate-vanilla swirl.

However, Japan offers a tantalizing array of flavors, from banana, pumpkin, and blueberry to green tea, Japanese plum, and Hokkaido Melon. There are also more eclectic offerings like sweet potato, wasabi, black sesame, and the sort of ice creams that appeal to a regional taste.

You may opt for vanilla or chocolate if you desire, but I think it's worthwhile to sample the offerings you will not find at home and that you will undoubtedly miss!
