Ice Cream City


Higashi-Ikebukuro 3 cho-me, Namjatown, Ikebukuro Sunshine City Complex,


One floor above Gyoza Stadium in Namjatown, Ice Cream City is full of gelato stands and Turkish men selling orchid-root-thickened ice cream. Cup Ice Museum, a theme park within a theme park, has around 300 flavors including Christmas Island salt, soy chicken, and preserved cherry blossom. In the dainty tubs of pearl ice cream - a top seller - customers might chance upon a real pearl. Try the eel ice cream - seriously - its caramely salty-sweet teriyaki kick and dusting of sansho pepper are incredibly compelling.
