While ice cream is still ice cream in Japan, you might not have seen a parfait this size before:
This little gem was discovered and enjoyed in a cafe in Fukuoka called Edokko. These places usually target young female groups who have a sweet tooth. For example, this cafe is located in a shopping center in the middle of town.
Of course, you don’t eat all of it yourself. As with Asian eating custom, you share with a group of friends. Each person gets a little spoon and then you dig in! These pitchers cost usually 1500 yen and up (but worth it if you split the cost within the group).
…Then, as you get nearer to the end, the whole thing starts to become an unattractive sticky ordeal…. (and, if you have a good eye, you can see that a Polaroid photo was made of us by the staff to commemorate the occasion, which they put up on their wall of fame)
