Beat the still lingering summer heat with... ice-cream cones in Sado!

by Fujiko

Have you ever tried "ice-cream cone"-hopping?

 Usually, people go bar-hopping in Japan but not for me.

I have a sweet tooth, so instead of going bar-hopping, I enjoyed ice-cream cone-hopping!

First, I went to Shimafumi bakery cafe in Mano to enjoy ice-cream cone made from locally produced Goshima milk.

It's not so sweet and very rich in flavor.

Next comes the ice-cream cone with gold dust!

You can enjoy this special ice-cream cone at the outside stall of Sado Gold and Silver Mine Museum in Aikawa.

Employees sampled several ice-creams and chose this one and sprinkled gold dust on top.

It has another rich taste (because of gold dust)  and good for your health...maybe?

 Third and the last...  ice-cream with locally produced tangerine jam at Ogiya souvenir shop in Ogi.

At first, I thought it's a piece of cake for me to have three ice-creams in a day but... two is enough??

Anyway, I did it and all were so good!

We have several more ice-creams with diffrent flavors using local products.

Please come and enjoy these delicious ice-creams in Sado to escape from the scorching summer heat in big cities!
