These enticing cones of rose-shaped ice cream are a Japanese treat known as Chirin-chirin ice cream. For the past 50 years they’ve been sold at tourist spots throughout Nagasaki city, usually by kindly little old ladies. The ice cream has a texture similar to sorbet and the rose is created by scooping it up in small petal-shaped portions and skillfully pressing the petals together, one at a time, while rotating the cone.
