You can get authentic Japanese shaved ice at this downtown Victoria treat shop


Summer’s not quite over yet, and there’s one hidden gem in town serving up a treat that’s sure to cool you down and satisfy your sweet tooth!

Oni-Oni is a Japanese treat shop tucked away at 585 Johnson Street, and houses an incredible selection of specialty snacks—including their very own shaved ice!

The icy dessert—called Kakigori—comes in 5 flavours including strawberry, melon, blue Hawaiian, yuzu and Oni-Oni’s housemade matcha.

On top of the above, the confectionary also features a great selection of fresh-made Onigiri (rice balls), Okashi (Japanese candy and snacks), and Nomimono (soft drinks).

If you’re looking for a treat in beverage form, they also serve Oni Floats—
refreshing soda topped with delicious vanilla ice cream in melon, strawberry, yuzu, rootbeer and cola.

They also carry unique and authentic imports all of the way from Japan—things you can’t find anywhere else like fans, chopsticks, toys, key rings, novelty lamps, and posters.
