The Gallery, located in the lobby of the hotel, serves an Afternoon Tea Set that is a must-try after a satisfying breakfast.

Aside from the desserts, what I love the most is their high-quality classic tea. Whether hot or cold, they’re perfect for refreshing the mind and body on a hot afternoon. The Four Seasons Hotel collaborates with Omotesando Koffee and the YU Tea House, two boutique coffee and tea brands from Tokyo to offer guests a selection of hand-brewed Japanese coffee and a variety of Chinese teas.

The savoury and sweet items on the menu change seasonally, and they are all delicious and not too heavy. I especially love their classic scones, which are served with homemade jam that is impossible to resist.
