Japanese shaved ice (Kakigori, かき氷; かきごおり).

Shaved ice is a large family of ice-based dessert made of fine shavings of ice or finely crushed ice and sweet condiments or syrups. Usually, the syrup is added after the ice has been frozen and shaved—typically at the point of sale. However, flavoring can also be added before freezing. The dessert is consumed world-wide in various forms and manners. Shaved ice can also mixed with large quantities of liquid to produce shaved ice drinks.

In Japan, the ice is known as  "Kakigori" and topped with flavors fruit flavoured or plain syrup. Some shops provide colorful varieties by using two or more different syrups. To sweeten Kakigori, condensed milk is often poured on top of it. During the hot summer months, kakigori is sold virtually everywhere in Japan. Some coffee shops serve it with ice cream and red bean paste. Convenience stores may also sell it already flavored and packaged similar to ice cream.

Shaved ice is also popular in South Korea, where there they call it ppatpingsoo (팥빙수). It consists of shaved ice, red beans, fruit, and ice cream. There are also flavorings that can make it coffee flavored, fruit flavored, whatever - you name it!!
