Popular shaved ice shop in Yanaka

Near the Chocolatier INAMURA SHOZO in Yanaka, they have a very popular shaved ice shop named "Himitsudo(ひみつ堂)." In summer, there is always a long line in front of the shop even under the strong sunshine. I gave up tasting their ice due to the queue. Now, it's already in Autumn and I finally tried to enter. Luckily to me, I could wait only for ...30 minutes(still!).

Young and old, men and women were just eating shaved ice!!
Shaved ice with fresh peach syrup and milk
The reason of their success is using pure and delicious ice of Nikko(日光) of Tochigi Prefecture (栃木県) and hand-made syrup of seasonal fruits. We ordered a shaved ice with fresh peach syrup and milk. It was...good indeed! Shaved ice was airy and melted immediately on mouth. Syrup made of ripe peach was also nice. As ice itself gets to melt soon, we quickly ate up. It was really nice...if it were only JPY500. One shaved ice costs around JPY900. A bit expensive. My rating is 2.5 out of 5. Gochiso-samadshita!
