Homemade ice cream with a nostalgic flavor that has been long loved in Onomichi City
Karasawa is an ice cream specialist shop on the waterfront, about 8 minutes on foot from the Onomichi Station.
The signature item, Ice Monaka (a wafer ice cream sandwich), is always made to order by sandwiching ice cream between the Monaka wafers. The thin crispy wafer is fragrant, and the delicate sweetness of the ice cream made from many eggs is excellent.
The ice cream flavor between April to September is “Tamago Ice” (egg ice cream) only. During other seasons Matcha, Sesame, Chocolate, and Strawberry ice cream are added to the menu for a limited time.
Other kinds include ice cream with sweetcorn, and ice cream in Zenzai (a thick azuki bean dessert soup).
It is nice to eat in the restaurant where one can feel the warmth of the wood, but having a bite on a bench at the jetty whilst overlooking the sea of Onomichi is also recommended.
