Hotel Gajoen Tokyo celebrated its 90th anniversary in December last year, and for this year’s hanami season, it has many cherry blossom themed food and events in the works all set to begin in March.
Hotel Gajoen Tokyo is located next to Meguro River, one of Japan’s most famous cherry blossom sites. When the flowers are in bloom, a bunch of flowery themed events are set to take place around the hotel including the restaurant.
Sakura Cake: ¥550 (Before Tax) @ Patisserie Lien 1928 (Running: March 1 – April 30)
We begin with a delightful delectable made with a white chocolate casing and filled with strawberry biscuit, strawberry jam and cherry blossom cream. It’s also laced with a little bit of Japanese sake jelly so when bitten into fills your mouth with a rich marriage of flavours.
Sakura Pancakes: ¥3,000 (Before Tax) @ Cafe＆Bar Yuian (Running: March 18 – April 30)
To bring out the ultimate fluffiness, the pancakes are steamed on a seiro steaming basket before being topped with cherry blossom sweet bean jelly. It is served with salted kōji ice cream. When you open up the basket your nose is hit sumptuously with the fresh smell of butter.
Sakura Afternoon Tea: ¥3,800 (Before Tax) @ KANADE TERRACE (Running: March 18 – April 14)
Indulge in a limited-time afternoon tea set brimming with beautiful cherry blossom inspired goodies.
Sakura Lunch Course: ¥5,000 (Before Tax) @ RISTORANTE “CANOVIANO” (Running: March 18 – April 30)
A springtime lunch course awaits made with lots of vegetables and a sauce that’s simple yet serves to bring out the original flavour of the masu salmon.
Sakura Kaisekizen: ¥3,500 (Before Tax) @ Tofutei (Running: March 18 – Early April)
Enjoy a spring-inspired traditional Japanese kaisekizen―an elaborate dinner assortment―with its delicate flavours and combinations. Have your fill of food with ingredients that beckon springtime including vegetable appetisers, Kyoto-style grilled Japanese Spanish mackerel, and much more.
The hotel is also home to the Hyakudan Staircase, or ‘100 Step Staircase,’ a registered Tangible Cultural Property of Tokyo. From March 28 to April 21 an exhibition of cherry blossom artwork will be on display including kabuki outfits with cherry blossom designs, ceramic art, paper crafts, bead art, patchwork quilts, flower arrangements, kusaki-zome natural dyeing, and more.
Secure a springtime trip in Japan this year at Hotel Gajoen Tokyo with a long line-up of exciting surprises.
