Daily One Inch Button - Shaved Ice Kakigori

Sometimes when you are in the mood for a cold dessert food, ice cream just won't do it. No, you want something made out of shaved ice, perhaps something that has been sweetened. The good news is that you can find your sweet treat in the form of kakigori, or Japanese sweetened shaved ice. Though sometimes electric machines are used to shave the ice needed for kakigori, in the summer you can find street vendors all over Japan manually shaving big blocks of ice. Kakigori is sometimes served in coffee shops with bean paste and ice cream. Makes me want to have some right now.
