A satisfying ensemble of delicate green tea ice cream, bouncy Warabi-mochi, and vanilla ice cream. Try to indulge it before the ice cream melts.
Enjoy this bowl with big pieces of Warabi-mochi, chestnuts, green tea ice cream, Red bean jam, Agar, Green tea jelly, and Shiratama (mochi). Pour the sweet molasses according to your taste.
