I didn’t know there was such a thing as buckwheat ice cream until today. I wonder what it taste like! Unfortunately it is only available in Japan. But you can try making it from scratch, i’ve included the link to the recipe below.

Here’s another one from Japan. According to the blogger, Felicia who posted this, you can get this at one of 27 road stations in Aomori. Go to “Road Station Shichinohe” located in Shichinohe Town where Shinkansen (bullet train) stops at Shichinohe-Towada Station (you can walk to the road station).
Why not try making it yourself! Here’s a recipe using buckwheat kernels and buckwheat honey
