Exquisite shaved ice from the 1890-founded natural icemaker "Asamireizo"

Natural ice is produced at only five locations in Japan today and one of these locations is Chichibu-Nagatoro. Asamireizo offers shaved ice made of such natural ice. Although it comes in a generous quantity, it is very easy to eat and it somehow doesn't even give you the regular headaches. Also look out for the unique syrup flavors that you will not find anywhere else, such as "black grapes milk yoghurt" and "whole mandarin orange". In summer and on weekends you may have to wait in a line for up to 2 hours, and you will probably see security officers keeping order.

創業1890年 天然氷蔵元「阿左美冷蔵」の極上かき氷

日本で5箇所しか作られていない天然氷。その1つの蔵元がある秩父長瀞。天然の氷をカキ氷として食べることができるのが、阿左美冷蔵です。山盛りなのに、ペロッと食べられて、頭がキーンとしない不思議な氷。「黒ブドウのミルクヨーグルト」や「まるごとミカン」など、他では味わえないシロップも秀逸です。夏場や週末は、2時間待ちも当たり前で、ガードマンが出るほどの人気です。
