Cherry Blossom themed afternoon tea at Shikitei Cafe in Omiya Rikyu Saitama City

Information for the seasonal afternoon tea at Shikitei Cafe in Saitama City.
In Spring 2023, the theme is cherry blossoms and strawberries, with a Japanese twist.

Seasonal Afternoon Tea

Shikitei Cafe is a cafe restaurant located in a wedding venue called Omiya Rikyu. Shikitei cafe is open to the public, but the rest of the venue is only for wedding guests. They have a fixed menu on the restaurant end of things, but each season they offer a themed afternoon tea.

Each year, since about 2016, I share information for their Halloween afternoon tea. But during the pandemic I also started to share their other seasonal high tea. Truthfully, there was so little else on at the time, I needed to fill the event pages! However, there was a greater interest than I had anticipated. So now, I share four of their seasonal events each year. Summer, Halloween, Winter and the cherry blossom themed spring Afternoon Tea. But their Halloween High Tea remains the most famous and popular.


Just like with the winter version, strawberries are a key feature of the spring version. It is a great time for strawberries, so no surprises there. But the ‘Japanese twist’ comes from the Matcha flavoring. In addition to the strawberries, the sweet flavors include lime and raw, white and plain chocolate.

The 3 tier tea stand has various mini desserts, such as Mont Blanc, mochi, jelly and macarons. There are two flavor of scones: plain or white chocolate cranberry. Savouries include temari sushi, mini quiche and green pea soup. As well as a mini marinated radish and tomato dish. In addition, the afternoon tea is accompanied with all you can drink (in 90 minutes) coffee, tea, including herbal tea, or soft drinks.
