Located on the west end of Nakanoshima in central Osaka and directly connected to Nakanoshima Station on the Keihan Nakanoshima Line, Rihga Royal Hotel (Osaka) offers both convenient access and the limited-time “Dessert & Tea Autumn Forest.”

Using plentiful autumn flavors like chestnuts, pumpkins, and grapes, the tea service presents a fairy tale world with a theme of “Forest - Autumn Leaves – Animals.”

Playful examples like the “Pumpkin Mousse and Hedgehog” featuring a chocolate and whipped cream hedgehog on top of pumpkin and cinnamon mousse, and the “Squirrel Cookie,” which looks like a standing squirrel holding a nut, are almost too cute to eat!

Other specialties among the wide array of treats include “Grape Verine,” made of layers of grape jelly and cream cheese topped with sweet and sour griot sauce, and “Mont Blanc,” a crispy meringue topped with marron cream. From October 16-31, tea time takes on a Halloween motif with bats, ghosts, and more.

The tea is served in the main lounge, overlooking the hotel’s impressive garden and wrapped in a calm atmosphere of traditional Japanese beauty, including the beautiful “purple cloud” chandeliers.

A picture book Halloween world is beautifully presented, and the three-tiered afternoon tea stand fashioned as a “Halloween castle” full of monsters is of particular note.

The “main gate” is made of grissini with a path lined in exotic spice salt. The second tier is themed as “a monster’s dark little sleeping floor,” with the monster’s room created through an arrangement of desserts on a black plate, including an eclair that looks like a mummy’s casket.

On the third level, cute monsters and a jack-o’-lantern celebrate the theme as “monster aristocrats enjoying the party.”

Served as a welcome drink, the non-alcoholic “Darjeeling HalloKir” cocktail with rose petals is highly recommended.
