Ice cream in Japan is good but the American "Cold Stone Creamery" store I found in Yokohama was a welcome new departure. They take whatever flavour of ice cream you want and put all the goodies you choose (slabs of chocolate, nuts, sauces etc.) into the ice cream on the "cold stone" right there in front of you. That means the goodies are not frozen and make a delicious contrast to the ice. Yummalicious.
