Shaved ice made with Nikko’s natural spring water5
Try our Specialty! Shaved ice made from Nikko’s natural water!
Nikko is home to 3 of the 5 ice houses or “Himuro” that currently exist in all of Japan.
(“Hi” means “ice”， “muro” means “room”.)
The other ice houses are found in Chichibu and Karuizawa.
Nikko’s natural water is frozen for 2 weeks and preserved in an ice room year round.
Here’s the good news : the shaved ice is soft as shown and won’t give you a headache even if you eat it quickly!
Each shop in Nikko has its own shaved ice specialty.
Try ujikintoki with maccha (powdered green tea)， syrup and bean jam on top.
Maybe strawberry or melon syrup is more your style. Why not try them all?
