The old English tradition of afternoon tea is alive and well in Tokyo, where city hotels are constantly trying to outdo each other with ever more luxurious servings. What's more, these indulgent tea sets often come with a Japanese twist, so you can expect an extensive selection with creative cakes, scones, small sandwiches and the like featuring the ingredient of the season.
Go ahead, reserve an afternoon all to yourself and choose from these seasonal afternoon tea options at some of Tokyo's top hotel lounges, cafés and restaurants.
Note: these restaurants/cafés/shops might close early depending on the current Covid-19 measures imposed by the authorities. Please check with the individual outlets for the latest business hours.
