Shaved ice flavored with syrup tasted lemon

Good for a hot summer day

Days on which the temperature rises above 30C are going on in Japan. In such a hot summer day, shaved ice is a relief to remove the heat. Selling shaved ice in Japan originated in Yokohama in 1869. Since then, eating shaved ice has become popular and it is a seasonal thing. There are many shops serving shaved ice which fly flags with common design printed on it. As you see in the photo below, that flag is flown at the entrance of a sweets shop. This day too, many people must be cooling down by eating shaved ice. In summer as well, you can experience various Japanese culture. Why don't you join me?

“ Difficult Day In Nikko ”

不好
7 months ago Traveler: Debra -   Tour Guide: Hiroyuki

Hiroyuki is an amicable, pleasant guide whose English is good but not fluent. We had some questions that he clearly did not understand. Our trip to Nikko was not a success because Hiro was not prepared with a “Plan B’” in mind for the difficulties that we experienced. The difficulties were not his fault: a national holiday that created horrific problems and delays on public transportation and fog...

Hiroyuki was very friendly but sometimes a little hard to understand and we felt that if his grasp of english had been better he would have had a lot of knoledge to impart. The tour was wonderful and we took a lot of photos to remind us of the beauty of this area.

“ Very nice man, but English not so good ”

1 year ago Traveler: Ronald -   Tour Guide: Hiroyuki

Hiro is extremely nice but we are very sorry we used him for our first trip to Japan. It is not fair to have a guide that cannot tell you stories about the places or anything other than the paragraph you read on triplelights I about the sight you are visiting. Hiro really should not be an English tour guide, it was not fair to us, we spent 4 days just following him around from place to place in...

“ A half day around Nikko ”

1 year ago Traveler: Eric -   Tour Guide: Hiroyuki

Hiroyuki is a very knowledgeable man. Teaching me about the history of Japan and the Edo period. I learned a lot from him. It was during Golden Week in Nikko so it was very crowded so we had to change up the itinerary to a walking distance instead of taking a bus. So the tour was a little shorter and went to less places but what can you do? Still had fun and learned a lot. Thank you for the tour.

Hiroyuki was great! We booked him only a 1 day prior and it was a very easy process. He met us at the hotel and built a custom itinerary. When we wanted to do things of the itinerary it was not a problem. He would take pictures for us of us which is always nice. He had a lot of great knowledge that made the tour very insightful. At the end of the day we wanted to stay in Asakusa so he departed fro...

All the four days Hiroyuki spent with us were planned by the minute. Hiroyuki showed us wonderful Tokyo, amazing Nikko and beautiful Kamaguru.
