“Authentic Italian Ice Cream”, just hearing these words make you imagine of gelato, its full rich taste with every bite, less fat and relief from the summer heat.
“Zoo” and “ice cream” are words so different its impossible to think of them together in most occasions but as usual, a normal day around Harajuku will bring you a lot of good surprises. As I was passing streets and streets of extremely cute items, I cant help but notice the long line in front of one store, so I was determined to check it out. Thus, I give you one of the summer craze here in Japan: Eiswelt Gelato.

EISWELT GELATO CRAZE
The store is easy to locate as it is located in the Main Street. There is a huge crossing right beside it that makes it a strategic spot to go and grab a bit of authentic Italian gelato after or while strolling around under the summer heat. The store has all the necessities the customer may need— one of them being the tissue because the gelato melts fast because of the hot weather.
