Enjoy some kakigori for that summer vibe 

Kakigori is a type of dessert made of shaved ice. People of all age loved having their cups of shaved ice resembling a mountain, with syrup and some sweetener as a flavoring. This is also a type of “festival food”, but it can be found everywhere in Japan during the summer months. The texture of the ice is fluffy and lighter compared to the common shaved ice. For a Japanese food catering in events, the kakigori is usually served in a fancy manner; slices of fresh or frozen fruits are used mixed with the ice or on the surface.
