Beat the summer heat by sipping on shaved ice kakigōri! Discover a new flavor as you travel Japan at each KAI resort!
What better way to cool down in Japan than with a kakigōri? This traditional shaved ice treat is enjoying a resurgence, with specialist stores popping up all over the country.
From now until the end of August, many KAI resorts are serving up their own regional kakigōri. Try a new taste in every location:
Ginger: at Hoshino Resorts KAI Izumo, you can sip on kakigōri spiced with sweet local ginger while enjoying views of the Tamayugawa river!
Strawberry: tochiotome strawberries are prized in Japan and offer true umami taste for the kakigōri at Hoshino Resorts KAI Nikko.
Manyo Yuzu: at Hoshino Resorts KAI Kawaji, local yuzu citrus fruit comes from trees over 30 years old – making for a refreshing kakigōri, topped with deep-fried kanpyo shavings.
