There are many types of kakigori (shaved ice desserts) that characterize Japan's summer, but if you are really going for sumptuous, you can't go wrong with the ujikintoki version that has the shaved ice on the bottom, followed by green tea syrup, and topped with red bean anko paste. Which is exactly what you get with the Kameyama Ujikintoki Kakigori Candle. The difference is that you can't eat it!
Not that you won't want to, though: the Kameyama Ujikintoki Kakigori Candle has come from the expert craftspeople of Kameyama, a company that has been making candles for almost a century (it was founded in 1927, in an area also called Kameyama that is known for its candle-makers), and it's unbelievably detailed, up to the last shaving of the ice and the last bean of the anko. It comes in a real glass, has a matcha green tea fragrance, and it keeps your space scented for three hours. No real kakigori ever lasts that long!
