Introduction of Patissier


Sayumi Ono, our talented patissier, has been passionate about creating desserts since she was five years old. She chose a school that allowed her to obtain both a cooking license and a high school diploma to pursue her dream. After gaining extensive experience at the luxurious XIV Hakone Rikyu, where she handled course desserts and lounge cakes for eight years, Sayumi decided to present her desserts directly to customers. This allows her to witness their smiles up close and showcase her skills fully.


Wearing a traditional kimono, Sayumi Ono prepares the parfait right in front of you, allowing you to ask various questions about the origins of the fruits used and more. This interaction with the artisan provides a valuable opportunity for foreign travelers interested in Japanese sweets.

Introduction of Tea Sommelier


We are proud to collaborate with Ryosuke Takano, an up-and-coming tea sommelier whose tea pairings are highly sought after by Michelin-starred restaurants. Ryosuke selects teas from around the world and curates three exquisite teas from Japan, perfectly complementing our parfaits. His selections not only enhance the flavors of our desserts but also allow guests to appreciate the stories and nuances behind each tea leaf, providing a sense of tranquility.


Tea tasting includes a selection of three carefully chosen teas that complement the parfait, such as oolong tea, Hojicha (roasted green tea), green tea, and black tea.


For example, in July, we offer organic oolong tea "Amaka Roasted Oolong Tea" from Takachiho, Miyazaki Prefecture; organic Hojicha "Hanakaori Hojicha" from Miyazaki Prefecture; and black tea "Benifuki" from Makinohara, Shizuoka Prefecture. These three teas were selected by Ryosuke to perfectly complement the July parfait featuring peaches.
