Young or old, everyone loves ice cream. If you are passing through Tokyo during the sweltering Japanese summer, be sure to eat ice cream or sorbet in one of the many places in the capital.

Suzukien & Nanaya Asakusa store


The Suzukien teahouse in Asakusa is recognized around the world for its famous matcha ice cream, a classic for most gourmet Japanese. The latter comes in 7 versions, more or less rich in matcha. But it is for its most concentrated version, in a powerful apple green color, that gourmets flock to this historic district of the capital... To be tested without delay! A pot of this "Premium" ice cream will cost you 560 yen ($6.25/5.50€).

Address: 3-4-3 Asakusa, Taito, 111-0032 Tokyo

Gomaya Kuki


Based in Ometosando, this somewhat unusual ice cream parlor specializes in a very specific type of ice cream: sesame ice cream. In a cone, in a jar, on a pancake, with whipped cream, or even topped with sesame oil, their ice cream is an opportunity to surprise your palate. At home, sesame comes in six flavors, more or less rich in sesame, from the darkest to the lightest. Count 500 yen ($5.75/5€) for a pot with two balls.

Address: 4-26-22 Jingumae, Harajuku H Bldg. 1F, Jingumae, Shibuya, 150-0001 Tokyo

Ice Monster Ometosando


The districts of Harajuku and Omotesando are true paradises of ice cream (and pastries!) for gourmands. The "Ice Monster" café offers a refreshing and sweet break: you can taste the very typical kakigori, these crushed ices accompanied by syrup. Be prepared, as the name of the café suggests, you will be faced with a veritable mountain of ice cream - which is probably best shared! You will have the choice between different gourmet flavors: strawberry, mango, coffee, or depending on the season, chestnut, apricot, or kiwi and pineapple...

Address: 6-3-7 Jingumae, Shibuya, 150-0001 Tokyo

Dolci Silkream Shibuya


An address that will delight "instagramers" and other fans of culinary perfection... The ice creams are refined, served in a delicious "cat's tongue" style cone (classic or chocolate), and made with Hokkaido milk. Ask for a "Cremia" to taste this creamy vanilla or chocolate flavored ice cream ... 515 yen ($5.75/5€) for a cone.

Address: 1F, Haimanten Jinnan Bldg., 1-19-4 Jinnan, Shibuya, 150-0002 Tokyo

Gelateria Sincerita


Finally, here is an essential classic: Italian ice cream. In Tokyo too, you can taste a real gelata: Gelateria Sincerita is THE shop not to be missed. Whether in a jar or a cone, the flavors vary depending on the time of year. From the classic pistachio, chocolate, or coconut flavors, to the most original such as ginger, blueberry cheesecake, or even tofu, get started, all their ice creams are safe bets.

Address: 1-43-7 Asagaya-Kita, Suginami-ku, 166-0001 Tokyo
