Shirokuma ice

This shaved ice is called “Shirokuma”.

It means polar bear.

You can see its face when you look straight down on it. 

The eyes and mouth are raisins,  and the nose is a cherry.

It uses milk flavored syrup and some kinds of fruits, jello, and beans are inside it. 

It is famous and delicious.

The original Shirokuma shop is in Kagoshima.

But you can buy it in a cup at convenience stores around Japan.
