“Japan is known for their style of quirky decorations and attractions … but I realized that no one is really talking about the ice cream cones,” Jason told 1010 WINS.

Since he began, hundreds of people have seen and liked his pictures. “I’m really humbled and thankful for all the kind messages that strangers left on my photos,” Jason said.
