Since it has been getting colder recently, I decided to take a trip to Gero to try out the hot springs. While I was there, I saw a very popular cafe next to the main road. There were people lining up down the street to get in the shop, so I decided to see why it was so popular. As I got closer, I saw a small fountain with hot water. There was a separate place for people to take a foot bath while enjoying hot vanilla pudding, heated from the mineral water. My friend ordered the pudding, but I decided to try out another popular item on the menu: soft serve vanilla ice cream, topped with cornflakes and an onsen egg. I was told that if you mix the egg and the ice cream together, it would taste like custard.
I’ve never tried anything like it before. I couldn’t decide if I liked the taste or not, but it was definitely worth trying, especially while soaking my feet in the foot bath!
