Karafuneya in Sanjo
February 6th, 2013

Karafuneya can’t help but catch passerbys’ eyes with the giant plastic parfaits in its lobby. In the heart of Sanjo, the store front doesn’t stick out much, except you can’t help but see the wall of other parfaits through the glass doors.

There are literally 100s of different desserts to choose from…my friend and I took over 20 minutes trying to decide. They all look deliciously amazing and although they’re a bit pricy [600 - 1000 yen], I think it’s worth the experience, at least once.

I had the Japanese special for 880 yen, scoops of red bean, black sesame, taro, and green tea ice cream, whipped cream with matcha powder, sliced apple, chunks of peach, red bean, cereal bits, a cherry, a shiratama [mochi-esque ball], and a wafer cookie. It was awesome, and beautifully presented, just like the picture.

A little bit of an intro...

This is my personal site to post some stuff – stuff that is so random I can’t really be any more specific. But if you care for photos of food, panoramas, my day, or just the thoughts that go on in my head, please stay!

I love to travel, bake, burn time on tumblr, read, cafe questing, and run around pretending to be a photographer. I also have a thing for Japanese, classical music, and food. Wherever I am and whatever I’m doing, I hope to do it with a smile, see new things, do everything, and just experience and take it all in.
