It is hard to miss this kind of shop when you walk around the street in Tokyo. The city is famous for its elegant tea rooms where you enjoy the wonderful tea culture of Europe.

Feel free to follow favy!

Afternoon Tea

This is a long-established tea house in Japan. The first branch opened 38 years ago at Shibuya Parco Part III, a place immersed with European style culture. You might be surprised to see different stores such as tearooms to enjoy an afternoon tea, bakeries with assorted pastries and also lifestyle stores with various choices of household goods that are sharing the same store name. They are actually the same stores that promote different aspects of European culture. You can easily spot them in Shibuya, Shinjuku, Skytree, etc.


This is a place for you to enjoy a pot of tea in good company. Afternoon Tea celebrates "Tea Day", known as "kocha-no hi"「紅茶の日」in Japanese, on 1st of November every year. It is the best deal to give this longstanding tearoom a try. You can try a wide selection of teas for a flat price of ¥790 (taxes included) and mixed flavoured teas with a price of ¥870 (taxes included). Teas are served hot or cold.
Tea time is always better with the standard English scones for ¥1,380 (Taxes included). There also cakes and parfaits for the sweet tooth.


Afternoon Tea Bakery is all about the pastries that are freshly made from the oven. The chain bakery mostly has branches outside of Tokyo, particularly in Fukuoka Prefecture and Kobe city in Hyogo Prefecture. The only TeaRoom branch within Tokyo that serves pastries is at Metro M Korakuen, a department store nearby Tokyo Dome. You can also find them when you drop by Kawagoe's TeaRoom (Saitama Prefecture) or Yokohama's TeaRoom (Kanagawa Prefecture).
They hold many events and do special collaborations throughout the year. The picture above is one of the past collaborations with Cat's Nap Time. The bun with chocolate balls is one of the popular items in the bakery. The price for a pastry is from ¥180 and above.


Searching for a place for a healthy meal? Love&Table is where you should go. It is cozy and good for gatherings. The average price for a meal here is around ¥1,500 (Taxes included). There is a wide range of dishes from salads to the mains to toasts for you to choose from.
The presentation of the food is very pretty here!



"Zakka" is known for its lifestyle items. To create a decor inspired by this afternoon tea culture, it's an excellent place to go to. Their products are of high quality yet are reasonably priced.


Their home fragrances are one of the recommended gift items.
