There are different flavours of soft-serve ice cream with ingredients from Nagano, e.g. chestnut bean jam, blueberries, wasabi (!), buckwheat (soba) etc.

We tried the miso-flavoured soft-serve ice cream in Zenkoji, Nagano City. The name of this shop is "Suyakame" and it is touted as the original shop which created this flavour (the shop is known for selling miso). The ice cream is very rich, aromatic and sweet (not salty at all!). It costs 300 Yen for 1 cone. It is a must-try!

We would definitely try out other flavours (e.g. buckwheat and wasabi) if we do visit Nagano again.

Favorite Dish: Rich and sweet miso ice-cream, with a nice aftertaste.

Address: 483 Motoyoshi-cho, Nagano
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: As you approach the Zenkoji Shrine, this shop is located at the entrance / exit of the row of shops leading to the shrine. See my photo for picture of shopfront.
