    The Statue of the Mother & Child of the Sun (A Monument to Ice Cream)

    4-45, Tokiwa-machi (Bashamichi Avenue)
    Yokohama, 231-0014

    Su to Sa from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AM

    The Statue of a Mother and Child of the Sun was designed by the sculptor, Shin Hongo and built in 1976 by the Kanagawa Chapter of the Japan Ice Cream Association. It is positioned opposite the real location of the first ice cream shop in Japan, started by Fusazo Machida who was a member of the first delegation to visit the United States of America. He was so impressed when he tasted ice cream that on his return he opened a shop called Hyousuiten (shop for iced water). For the first ten years of business, Machida had to bring natural ice from Hokkaido for his handmade ice cream process. -AH
