Retro Sweets Afternoon Tea

Step back in time to the Showa era

Nov 1st
Nov 30th
Venue: Sheraton Miyako Hotel Osaka When: Nov 1st - Nov 30th 2021

Many foods have a special place in history, and evoke a certain sense of nostalgia for times gone by. An event taking place at the Sheraton Miyako Hotel Osaka throughout November will give guests a little foodie throwback to the Showa era – the Retro Sweets Afternoon Tea.

Priced at ¥ 2500 per head, the event includes a variety of eats that are seen as Showa era icons, including custard pudding, fruit roll cake, and apple galette. Guests will also be served a cream soda of their choice (either melon or blue Hawaii flavored) to round out the retro feel.

To make a reservation, please visit the hotel's website here.

For those who opt to drive, the hotel is around 5 minutes from the Hanshin Expressway's Dotonbori exit. On-site parking is available at a price of 700 yen per hour, up to a maximum of 1000 yen per day.

I sometimes make custard pudding at home, including the caramel sauce.

The cakes look prettier than anything I could make.

A bit of labor and time, but it's good.

Oh, in my childhood there were 'swan' mini cakes! They looked very similar to the one on the photo! I loved them and ate a head with neck first. Nostalgic! :)

Yes! That's exactly what those ones are, filled with cream!

This is really fun. I don't think many tourists know about the "Showa" era, despite many Japanese people feeling a sense of nostalgia when talking about it. Food is a good introduction I think!

Showa period was rather long - it lasted 63 years, and it was the era of fast progress. Shame not to know about it!
