Japanese Ice Cream Flavor Challenge

Tokyo’s summer is hot with temperatures often over 35C / 94F and humidity so high it’s like being in a sauna. One was to stay cool it so eat ice cream. Japanese has it’s own original flavors and ingredients. Nevermind Ben&Jerry’s, Baskin Robbins 31 flavors, and Cold Stone! John Daub heads to Ebisu where he enjoys Japanese ice cream at JAPANESE ICE OUCA.
