Hotel New Otani: Sakura sweets you will want to share at cherry blossom viewing and parties

At Hotel New Otani's three directly managed hotels (in Tokyo, Makuhari, and Osaka), three new sweets with cherry motifs will be sold at the pastry shop Patisserie SATSUKI from Sunday, March 1 to mid-April.

Three new sweets with a cherry motif

One of the new sweets is the Sakura Roll (800 yen each, tax not included), which has a cherry blossom fragrance. Next, the Sakura Franc (1,200 yen each, tax not included), is topped with six Amaou strawberries and colorful pastel colors. Last is the cute Shinsakura Macaron (2,000 yen per box, tax not included).

The Sakura Roll is a cake roll made using carefully selected ingredients that enhance the gorgeous flavor of cherry blossoms. It is made with Sakura-kuzu using Kazuki-mochi lactic acid bacterium from Funabashiya, agar flavored with cherry blossoms, black honey bean paste with Aingashima Hingy's salt, and mellow lychee flesh from Kyushu Omuta. The roll is wrapped in cream that looks like white fabric. It shines with a cherry blossom color.

The Sakura roll is topped with candied cherry petals to accentuate it.

The Sakura Franc uses a special white cereal blended with a unique blend of bubbles, caviar, and amaranth combined with a light cherry flavor flan using brown rice egg with a refreshing umami taste. It is a sweet with luxurious toppings of Sakura Macaroon and Hakata Amaou.
