Shaved Ice at Pass The Baton
If you are in the Gion District of Kyoto, I would definitely recommend visiting Pass The Baton. This is a really cute shop / cafe / tea house that serves amazing Shaved Ice in special flavors that change frequently. My friend, and Kyoto native, recommended trying this place out and I am so thankful she did! I had the Sweet Soy Sauce (think dango flavored) Shaved ice with red bean topping. It was soooooo good! (and enormous!) They also have a variety of other foods to eat and drink.
