Ginza : Last Kakigori at Matsuzaki Senbei (松崎煎餅)

Matsuzaki Senbei Ginza branch moved because of reconstruction and they quit cafe. They only sell senbei now.

If you want to have their Japanese sweets in cafe, there’s only their cafe in Setagaya area. (Open hours 11:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. / Closed – Wednesdays)


I thought I won’t be able to eat kakigori any more this year.


I found the shop on my way to Mitsukoshi. It’s in front of Ginza subway station !

It was 29 September.
Kakigori was served at this shop until the end of September.

I thought it was a fate.

I intended to eat ice cream at another shop, but I went toward the shop’s 2nd floor.
There was not much guests as usual. Because almost all foods are about 1000 yen. It is a little expensive for rest.

I was waiting over  a cup of hojicha 🙂
I could hear the sound of ice shaved.

A few minutes later, my kakigori came.
It had a strange shape as usual. With condense milk (+105 yen).

At first, I ate the kakigori without condense milk. This kakigori melted in my mouth soon.

Then I put condense milk over the kakigori, and I ate. I don’t need condense milk to eat this kakigori.Sweetness of the condense milk deprived the kakigori of maccha flavor, I think.

I like this kakigori so much. I want to eat it next summer, too 🙂
Of course I’ll order it with shiratama. 😛

    I’ve never had kakigori, but it looks really tasty. I hope I get a chance to try it next time I’m in Japan.
