We went 1/14/19 in the afternoon time. The line looked long was was lined just a bit outside the entrance—but it went quick. Less than 5min. I ordered the Ichiban (green tea with ice cream, mochi, sweet bean, and condensed milk) it was great! My...More

This is high priced ice. You can go to a shave ice down the street for half the price! Just another trap for the Japanese tourists.

Generous portions, friendly staff and delicious shave ice. There's almost always a long line, which is only an indication of how popular this place is. Worth the wait!

We were firstly surprised with the size of the queue. There were more that 40 people however, the service is fast and we were served in less than 10 minutes. You decide how many different colors you would like.

My daughters tried a TON of shaved ice places and finally tried this one right before we left. It was good, but not worth standing in a line for over an hour. If line is short, go for it!

Absolutely the best shave ice on the island. Lines moved quickly. Lots of flavors to choose from. Take the large size and add ice cream.

Yes. There could possibly be products in the gift shop with peanuts. Shave ice is eaten outside so there shouldn't be any close contact with anyone who could have peanuts on them. Shave ice is just syrup and ice in a bowl.
