    This gelato is hand-made each day from the rich milk of the Jersey cows reared freely and milked each morning on the shop’s farm. Seasonal fruit and vegetable flavors are particularly popular.

Aomori Areas

Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori’s fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
