In Japan, May 5th is Children’s Day (Kodomo no Hi). During this time, it is custom to put up decorative armour and helmets around the house. In olden times, this was a practice held only by military families, but it was common amongst the masses in the Edo Period. This custom is still practiced even today.
The Sheraton Miyako Hotel Osaka’s café and gourmet shop Café Bell is now selling a helmet-shaped cake for Children’s Day.
This chocolate crunch cake is layered with more chocolate, vanilla and strawberry mousse and coated in even more chocolate. The helmet crest is sprinkled with reddish-brown gold dust. It has an image that yells ‘brave’ to it.
A traditional kaiseki multi-course dinner with free drinks has been prepared for families to celebrate Children’s Day. There’s also a children’s bento that contains chimaki – a rice cake wrapped in bamboo leaves – that’s said to ward off evil and contribute towards the healthy maturity of a child. Also, as a bonus to the plan, anniversary cakes will be given out!
Don’t miss out on this special menu at Sheraton Miyako Hotel Osaka.
“ABENO Dessert Festival and Shaved Ice Collection” will be held at ABENO HARUKAS!
