Too-Cute-To-Eat Easter Desserts In Japan!

Easter Sunday is the day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Although bunnies and eggs symbolize Easter, this day is celebrated by going to Easter service at a church and children go on a Easter egg hunt. What about Easter in Japan?

Easter In Japan

In Japan, less that 40% of the population identify themselves with an organized religion, but mostly Buddhists and Shinto religions, and only 1-2% of the population are Christian. Therefore, Christian celebrations such as Christmas and Easter are celebrated very differently in Japan.

Most of the population are unaware of what the true meaning of Easter is, and it is more about eating cute rabbit-shaped colorful desserts. For experiencing the "Japanese-way" of celebrating Easter, try out some of the cute Easter sweets in Japan!

This article will introduce some stores that make cute Easter desserts this spring season!

MAX BRENNER

Max Brenner is a chocolate bar headquartered in New York City, and the chocolate chunk pizza is their iconic menu. There are five stores located in Japan, but the Omotesando store is always crowded with a long line of chocolate lovers.

In Japan, they have seasonal menus during holidays and events.

From 2017/3/15~ 2017/4/30, the Easter egg chocolate pudding is served at the cafe.

Other than the Easter menu, they also have a Spring seasonal menu that is themed with the color "pink", as spring is the cherry blossom blooming season in Japan.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Krispy Kreme is a famous doughnut chain first established in North Carolina, USA, and is famous for their original glazed doughnut. Just within Tokyo, there are 11 Krispy Kreme stores and is a widely popular store in Japan.

The Krispy Kreme in Japan has Japan-original flavors such as green tea doughnuts, but also has seasonal flavors.

Also, from 3/22~4/25, you can purchase an Easter decoration set for ¥550. This set comes with two doughnuts, one chocolate pen and three toppings. You can make your own original Easter egg doughnut!

Ginza Cozy Corner

Cozy Corner is a Japanese cake store opened in Ginza, Tokyo in 1948. Their store concept is to make desserts that make people smile, and to value the unison between friends and families. Therefore, their desserts are all sold at a reasonable price, and their desserts are very cutely decorated for children to also enjoy the desserts.
Recently, they started selling "Easter desserts" collaborating with Disney. This dessert is made for family gatherings and house parties to celebrate Easter by eating rabbit shaped desserts with your friends and families.
Furthermore, they have cup desserts that shape the pink mousse into a bunny shape to attract young girls.

Lastly...

As you can see, Easter in Japan has barely anything to do with the true Christian meaning, but more about enjoying cute seasonal desserts. If you're in Japan during Easter season, try out some cute Japanese Easter desserts!
