Tokyo Tokyo, Sakura Festival

Japan is a dream destination to many. And when in Japan, it is a must to witness the Sakura Festival. A fleeting season that symbolizes the temporal beauty of life, it is best enjoyed and appreciated by locals and visitors alike by having a picnic with friends, families and colleagues under the cherry trees.

Chicken Karaage, and Beef Misono

Common Japanese festival food staples such as grilled or fried meat, fish and vegetables, and colorful sweets line the picnic baskets. Though, due to hectic work life and busy schedules, not everyone can marvel at the beauty of Sakura. Thanks to Tokyo Tokyo, they are bringing the experience and the taste for everyone to enjoy without the need to leave the country.

Prawn and Vegetable Tempura

Taking inspiration from the long-standing Japanese tradition of welcoming spring, Tokyo Tokyo now offers a Sakura-inspired bento meal. Dubbed as the Sakura Sumo Meal, this filling meal contains favorite Japanese dishes and pink-colored new treats that are perfect for sharing.

Sakura Lychee Fizz Drink

Tokyo Tokyo introduced a very refreshing Sakura Lychee Fizz Drink to compliment the Sakura Sumo Set, and for dessert, Sakura Mochi Ball, filled with Peanut Butter.

Sakura Lychee Jelly

When all those yummy delish food is not enough to satisfy your Sakura craving, you may opt to upgrade your Sumo Meal and add Sakura Lychee Jelly, a lychee-flavored dessert with fresh fruit bits and topped with cream cheese topping; or Sakura Potato Salad, a yummy concoction of potato cubes, kani strips, and beets on a bed of lettuce with Japanese mayo dressing.

Sakura Potato Salad

This good-for-two meal is available for only 379php. However, like the Cherry Blossom Festival, this can be enjoyed for a limited time only.
