Matsumoto Shave Ice is a shave ice stand in the midst of their grocery business. The carloads of racing enthusiasts and the waves of surfers and hippies in the ’60s brought people from across the globe to this quaint store to purchase the shave ice, or “snow cone” cascading with their homemade syrup.
Today, on a warm, sunny day, the store produces 1,000+ shave ice. Locals and many people from around the world have visited the store.
