'Sweden' is now 'Silkream'
That tired old ice cream parlor that the boys loved -- the one called Sweden that was a few doors down from TOA Textile World (great fabric place), west of the JR train tracks, across the street and up the road from Tower Record in the Udagawacho area of Shibuya ku -- has been replaced with something better: a pretty new "dolci cafe" with a takeout window! Now we're talking. And the prices are reasonable (given some of the astonishing gelateria prices around town). We paid 380 yen for this decent sized soft-serve-yet-premium-quality vanilla cone.
