A Standard Yet New! Five Select Constantly Evolving Fukuoka Strawberry Kakigori Shaved Ice

Strawberry is such a standard flavor for kakigori shaved ice that some people equate it with kakigori. However, recently, strawberry-flavored kakigori have evolved with unusual styles and tastes. We introduce five strawberry-flavored kakigori that are standards and are yet somehow new.

Kamadoya's Ichigo Gori Strawberry Shaved Ice

Because this is a natural foods store, the ingredients are the key to its kakigori shaved ice. This is the only store in Fukuoka that sells the Ichigo Gori strawberry shaved ice by a strawberry farm in Otsuki, Kochi, with which it has a relationship. On a good day, more than 100 bowls are sold.
