Rosa Rugosa Flavored Soft Serve Ice Cream

3 types of soft serve ice creams, Rosa Rugosa Flavor, Swirl Soft Serve Ice Cream with Rosa Rugosa Flavor and Vanilla Flavor, and Vanilla Flavor are served, and the Rosa Rugosa Flavored Soft Serve Ice Cream is most popular. The price was JPY 300. I bought it, and went up the 2nd floor. The Rosa Rugosa Flavored Soft Serve Ice Cream was light pink, and it tasted slightly rose hip jam. It was not too sweet, and had a refreshing flavor. Thanks for the tasty soft serve!
