Indulge in Omotesando This Christmas With Q-Pot CAFE.’s Afternoon Tea Set
Christmas is almost here, and at Q-pot CAFE. in Omotesando, the festivities have already begun as they begin serving a selection of special Christmas-exclusive menu items. These will be available until December 25.
Q-pot. is known for its accessory brand, which features jewellery made to look like sweets and desserts. It is also known for the Q-pot CAFE. which flips that concept, instead making sweets and desserts that look just like real accessories.
I visited Q-pot CAFE. to treat myself to their exciting Christmas afternoon tea.
Q-pot. Omotesando is a 7-minute walk from Omotesando Station’s A2 exit. You’ll spot the entrance by its sparkly illuminations as pictured above.
The cafe is split into seven concept rooms, such as Melt, Chocolate, BisQuit, SAKURA, and so onーso you can pick which sounds good to you and sit there. It also gives a reason to go back more than once!
The Story of Sweet Kingdom Afternoon Tea Set ¥2,400 (Tax Included/Drink Included)
The afternoon tea set: an indulgence any cafe-lover craves for at least once. And since Christmastime is coming, you want to enjoy a little treat too, right? Well, this two-tiered set comes with desserts, sweets, and some light food too.
The top plate includes gingerbread man pops, cupcakes, vanilla panna cotta, and macarons.
The gingerbread man pops are filled with caramel ganache, while the red velvet cupcakes topped with pistachio cream and made to look like a Christmas tree. The panna cotta is also sprinkled with dragees to look like stardust.
The macarons are strawberry and melon flavoured. The melon one has a particularly rich flavour and contains red melon pieces. This macaron is so popular that there are people who go to Q-pot CAFE. just to sink their teeth into one of them.
The bottom plate contains some hearty and crunchy croissants filled with roast beef, mini tomatoes, and broccoli. It also comes with a side of rich cheese soup with onions and potatoes inside. It’s a great palate cleanser after the desserts.
Pistachio Cream Tea Latte ¥750 (Tax Included) *Also sold separately
The drink that’s served with the afternoon tea set is a Christmas-only pistachio cream tea latte. It’s a latte made with one of the cafe’s original flavoured tea brews called “Flower Garden.” The tea ensures the drink isn’t overly-sweet and leaves it with a mild flavour. It also comes with a holly-shaped cookie. This drink is also available to order separately from the drinks menu.
The set comes with a special fairy tale-like Christmas lunch mat.
CHRISTMAS CAKE ~The Story of Sweet Kingdom~ ¥3,800 (Tax Included)
The cafe is also selling a cake that looks like something out of a children’s picture book. It’s topped with a coconut meringue snowman, gingerbread man, and strawberry Santa. This would make a great addition to a home party.
Saku Saku Meringue ¥600 (Tax Included)
Take away some crunchy snow-white meringues too, so addictive you won’t be able to stop after just one!
The cafe is also selling a Christmas collection of their dessert-like accessories too.
Christmas Tree Cupcake: Necklace ¥10,000/Bag Charm ¥8,000 (Before Tax)
The Christmas tree cupcake features a chocolate cookie-like base topped with a realistic pistachio cream adorned with pearls.
Strawberry Santa Claus: Necklace ¥10,000/Bag Charm ¥8,000 (Before Tax)
Check out these adorable bright-red strawberry Santas too!
Q-pot CAFE. has lots of other Christmas food and accessories in addition to these too, so if you’re in Tokyo anytime from now up to Christmas Day, then be sure to visit.

Tokyo Nightlife Beckons With Tokyo Tower’s NAKED SAUNA & SPA
19.February.2021 | SPOT
It’s time to strip down and relax as Japanese company NAKED announces that its ‘NAKED NIGHT SAUNA’ event, which is being held as part of its ‘NAKED SAUNA & SPA’ project, will take place atop Tokyo Tower from March 12 to 14. Visitors will also receive a relaxation drink called ‘CHILL OUT’ in collaboration with Endian.
NAKED SAUNA & SPA is a sauna project launched by NAKED in November 2020 to promote equilibrium of the senses. The first event was held in the village of Achi in Nagano Prefecture which is known for being Japan’s best location for enjoying the starry night sky. The second event was themed around the concept ‘Art of Meditation.’ It was held in Ariake and had visitors becoming one with nature as they sat under the expanse of Tokyo’s night sky to enjoy every gleaming speck that twinkled above them. It was an opportunity for busy city workers to reset and recalibrate.
Now, the project is set to host its third event in collaboration with Tokyo Tower. Visitors can enjoy towering above the capital’s city streets as they enjoy a sauna experience inside exclusive tents. It will be a fusion of analogue and technology as people enjoy sitting by the fire, smoking shisha, and gazing at mist that will be pumped and illuminations that will be lit to create atmosphere. Of course, this entire event will be held in accordance with government guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Social distancing will be enforced which will include a drive-through system so you don’t come into contact with people, and all visitors will have their own tents (groups of 4 max), and all tent saunas will be separated with partitions.
The tent saunas that will be used are MORZH SKY, a type of tent with a transparent roof made by the Russian tent company MORZH. They are provided by Sauna Camp.Inc. The tents are fitted with a stove and chimney so visitors can adjust the temperature to their liking.
To attend the event, you must register to the Facebook online community NAKED SAUNA CLUB and fill out the form that will be made available there on March 1 and 2. A select number of visitors will be chosen at random on March 3 and winners will be contacted directly on March 4 with further instructions.
If you’re in Tokyo this March, then don’t miss out on a chance to kick back and unwind up Tokyo Tower with a sauna treat.

Japanese bakery and confectionery company Nenrinya is releasing a takeout baumkuchen dessert which can be warmed up at home.
