Kakigori (shaved ice), popular summer sweet

This syrup is a maccha green tea flavor.  The combination of shaved ice and chewy rice dumplings is nice.

This summer is abnormally hot. Although after the week of ‘Obon’ (three-day Buddhist holidays on August 13, 14 and 15) Japanese usually start to feel the summer ending and a little sad, this summer is too hot for them to have such a sentimental feeling.

Here is Kakigori. It’s a popular summer sweet of shaved ice covered with syrup. Some famous Kakigori cafes have enthusiastic fans waiting in a long line under the ruthless sun.

Maybe the heat like this is becoming usual because of global warming. And the Kakigori season would be longer.
