Worth multiple visits!

Not a vegan place, so not giving it 5 stars, but the ice cream was delicious and I wish I'd been able to go multiple times to try more flavours! Staff were helpful and there was so much choice. Lots of interesting Japanese traditional flavours. You get a 100yen voucher for money off your next visit!

Best vegan gelato ever!

Omg how can I possibly capture the delight at tasting gelato that brought me back a decade to before I discovered a plant based lifestyle?! Many flavors and all allergens are clearly listed. Go here. Just go!

Creamy vegan ice cream

Partner and I both agreed the pistachio flavoured ice cream was some of the creamiest (and tastiest) ice cream we have ever had. I had a brown rice caramel flavour which I did not love though. Overall great though. Friendly staff.

Loads of vegan flavours!!

Great quality ice cream and lots of vegan options. I loved the ninja flavour, it's subtle and not too sweet. Two flavours is ¥600.

Wide range of flavours

I’m disappointed that I only had time and stomach space for two of the twenty plus vegan flavours. Although I did get to try three more

The ice cream was delicious, the staff were friendly and the shop was warm and accomodating.

I hope this place eventually becomes 100% vegan

Pros: Twenty plus vegan flavours, Clearly marked what is and isn’t vegan

Cons: Not 100% vegan

16 vegan gelato options 😁

Wonderful little organic shop and gelato counter, I had the choice of 16 options so overwhelmed! You get to sample 3 before making your decision, I had the matcha one and the brown sugar with roasted soy flavour, absolutely delicious and is up there with the best I have ever had. It's only a 10 min walk from Nijo-Jo Castle, definitely stop by, the staff were very friendly and spoke English really well 😊🌿💚

Pros: So many choices

Cons: None

My favorite vegan ice cream shop was in Rome and now I have a second one and trust me I am very picky. The taste man, so AMAZING. I want to fly back in time just to have some in my mouth. They let me try a lot before choosing four flavors with my boyfriend :
- Matcha - Miso (Oh my...) - Ninja ( black sesame/rice/bean/corn ) - Creamy caramelized rice milk
Japanese flavors of course ;)

Pros: Staff, Taste, quality., LOOOOOTS of vegan choice.

Best ice cream I’ve had in Japan

There are so many flavors of vegan gelato/ice cream here! We were able to sample many of the flavors. There are some unusual—but delicious—flavors like yuba and matcha ume. But there are plenty of other vegan flavors like chocolate, coconut, and pistachio.

Pros: Many flavors of vegan ice cream, Soy milk option for coffee drinks, Staff is very knowledgeable about vegan items

Amazing Flavours

They have a vast choice of interesting vegan ice cream flavour. I tried the white miso cheesrcake flavour which was a but strange, but not bad. I finally opted for the Matcha Ume, and the Macademia Nuts Coffee flavour which were great! I’m definitively going back! I also got some vegan groceries! (Coffee, mapo tofu sauce, mock meat)

A true gem! The staff is friendly and speaks perfect English. The only downside is the price and that it is so difficult to choose among all the great flavours!

Pros: Lets you try flavours, Absolutely delicious, Healthy

Cons: Pricy, Doesn't accept credit card
