This is a flavor of ice cream I have only seen in Japan (but then I haven't had ice cream in all that many places in the world). It is gray -- the color of ash. Anybody care to guess what it is?
Souyas guessed correctly (but it's not fair because he's Japanese :) It is kurogoma (black sesame) ice cream. Black sesame products are quite popular in Japan. In this case it gave the ice cream a kind of nutty, burnt flavor.
This was taken at Shimizu Kouen by the way. Shimizu Park is a botanical garden in Chiba.

Is it one of these? As for the image, I like your framing, and the diagonal layers of the background works well, not distracting.

You found the interesting thing! The materials of this ice cream are black sesame. It is fragrant and is very delicious!
I considered that it was better not to cut a male face.

Could it be a special flavour flaunted upon tourists visiting a Japanesse volcano site :-)

An OK picture of a strange ice cream. I guess you did not post this for its great composition or photographic quality, but rather as an illustration. And it works fine as an illustration. As a quality photograph it lacks in composition, I would like to see the whole face of the man (at least the eyes). Also the background is a bit messy, though the colors of the mans shirt match with the colors of the background.
