Though cherry blossoms in Tokyo already fell, the blossoms in Tohoku region will be at their best soon. And we can still enjoy cherry-blossoms in Tokyo. With sweets. Now we can enjoy sweets that have cherry tree leaves and cherry-blossoms, and cherry-blossom-shaped confectionery, not to mention sakuramochi.
I ate Sakura anmitsu at Kanten Papa Cafe (かんてんパパカフェ) in Hatsudai close to Shinjuku. The glass in the center had cherry blossoms syrup. A petal floated 🙂 I put it over the anmitsu just before eating. The tea was sakura tea.
It smell cherry blossoms a little. The ice cream had cherry blossoms extract. It was tasty.
This cafe was managed by “Kantenpapa” that is a campany in Nagano. They produce many foods made from agar. “Kanten” means agar in English. This anmitsu have gelee and square jelly made from agar. It was really good.
