WESTNARA “Premium Shaved Ice” is born!

WESTNARA “Premium Shaved Ice” is born!

Nara Prefecture is said to be the birthplace of the culture of eating ice, as Himuro Shrine, which is said to be the guardian deity of Himuro, is located in Nara City and Tenri City.
Therefore, we started a JAL collaboration premium shaved ice project that utilizes local fruits, agricultural products, and specialty products. Starting from April 2020, you will be able to enjoy premium shaved ice supervised by JAL international first class in-flight pastry chefs at WESTNARA premium shaved ice certified stores.
Premium shaved ice uses seasonal ingredients and specialty products.
