Ice Cream in Otaru

Housed in a converted warehouse that was built in 1892, just back from the canal, this legendary Otaru ice-cream parlour scoops up some seriously 'special' ice cream flavours, such as wasabi, beer, and natto. The ika-sumi (squid ink) is actually just mildly sweet. Melon, a more ice-cream friendly flavour, is divine.
