Umezono Kakigōri – Meals Sake Tokyo


Kakigōri shaved ice is one technique to make Tokyo summers bearable. Matcha and azuki is a traditional mixture. Some sweetened condensed milk to make it richer. Umezono is a well-known conventional sweets store in Asakusa. This department is within the Nihonbashi Takashimaya division retailer, on the seventh ground, within the kimono division.

I used to be stunned to find that this store was right here. I used to work within the retailer and had walked by way of the kimono part a number of occasions and by some means by no means seen there was a restaurant. 

Close by is a department of Sukiyabashi Jiro. The well-known sushiya from the documentary Jiro Goals of Sushi.

One other factor I found was that males have began working as elevator operators at Takashimaya. I used to be in an elevator full of kimono-clad prospects, me, and the male operator. I mentioned in Japanese, “How uncommon, a person operating the elevator.” and the women had a pleasant snigger. The younger man had a deep voice that echoed on every ground as he known as out letting buyers know the elevator was obtainable. He mentioned he had lately began. One other male operator mentioned that he’s been on the job for nearly two years. I wanted them each properly.

Eating at shops is a superb tip when touring in Japan. I wrote about it right here for @foodandwine:
