Matsumoto Shave Ice, Haleiwa
This place is located in the historic surfing town of Haleiwa, on Oahu’s north shore, and is a famous shop. What once began as a small grocery story has transformed into so much more – t-shirts, souvenirs, snacks and, of course, their famous shave ice. On a hot summer day, the store produces more than 1,000 shave ices!
