Celebrate the arrival of spring at Tokyo Midtown in Roppongi. The centrepiece of this annual event is the 200m cherry blossom-lined avenue through the Garden Area of Tokyo Midtown and it’s especially magical after 5pm when it’s all lit up.
To get the most out of the flowers, you’ll want to make a beeline for the Midtown Blossom Lounge. Sit down and enjoy views of the cherry blossoms along with other spring blooms, such as marguerites, windflowers and lavender. Order some chicken wings with truffle-flavoured hash browns (¥1,400) and pair it with a gin and tonic (from ¥700), or opt for creative spring-themed sweets (from ¥650) by the skilled chefs of the Ritz-Carlton.
If you’re craving both savoury and sweet, the Lounge Set (¥5,000; pictured above) has got you covered – it includes the Citrus Flower Fizz cocktail and its mocktail version, an assortment of three sakura-inspired sweets, smoked salmon, basil-flavoured mash potatoes and some nuts.
