InterContinental Tokyo Bay: An After-Dark Tokyo Panorama!

InterContinental Tokyo Bay: An After-Dark Tokyo Panorama!

Located in the recently redeveloped area of Takeshiba, the InterContinental Tokyo Bay hosts a Christmas Course consisting of high-quality dishes each embodying the festive spirit. The menu was designed by head chef Michiya Nakaune, who won 3rd place in the International French Cuisine Competition and just last year was bestowed with the Order of Agricultural Merit from the French Republic.

Starting at 18,000 yen, you’ll be treated to 6 courses including an appetizer of luxurious ingredients like caviar and foie gras alongside a poêlé made from blackfin seabass from Kyushu. The wagyu beef tenderloin, which is baked in a salty pie crust, will be brought out and cut up before your very eyes to whet the appetite before digging in. The toasting drink will naturally be champagne, after which you can freely relish a carefully curated lineup of free drinks including red and white wines and various cocktails.

There is a lineup of different plans available, including a “Guaranteed Window Seat Plan” to bask in the views of romantic sights like the Rainbow Bridge, Odaiba, and Tokyo Bay, along with a plan allowing a taste of the top-tier Dom Pérignon champagne. No matter which plan you choose, each will undoubtedly lead to an unforgettable Christmas night!
