Watercolor Sketch, Kyoto Japan, Green Tea Soft Serve Ice Cream
My daughter and I had walked the Path of Philosophy, from the Ginkaku-Ji Temple to the Eikan-do and Nanzen-ji Temples, and stopped at an outdoor cafe for a green tea soft serve ice cream. I adore green tea and anything made with matcha, (the powdered form of green tea). Where I have had green tea ice cream at Japanese restaurants in the States, it is rare to find it soft serve. I’m embarrassed to say, or maybe not, that I had one of these cones every single day I was in Kyoto. As I was sketching at the table, the owner of the cafe came out and presented me with one of her name cards, which I attached in my book. This one had to be quick before it melted all over my daughter’s hand!
