Little Mermaid themed Sweets Buffet at Keio Plaza Hotel

Since the sweets buffet events are very popular among Japanese young women, the Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku adds to that trend and prepares a special menu every month. The buffet's main theme for this summer is the “Little Mermaid” and between June and August you can enjoy refreshing desserts and cakes. For June a range of blueberry flavored dishes are prepared, for July special peach flavored desserts are planned, and the main flavor for August’s menu will be mango.

Wattention staff tried out the buffet on Sunday afternoon at the Hotel’s restaurant “Jurin.” The beautiful ocean-themed decoration and the LED board which highlighted a selection of desserts raised our spirits.

Colored roses, blue and green candles, as well as hydrangea flowers which represent the rainy season in Japan are used for decorations.


We entered the restaurant and were guided to our table in front of the floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the garden.

The event starts at 3pm, so we had the chance to take a closer look at the already set up buffet and take some pictures.

We received an explanation about the buffet and the time limit, as well as the drink menu.


The all-you-can-drink menu is in Japanese, but the staff will explain everything in English as well. You can choose between a variety of coffee, iced beverages and juice. Regarding the tea menu, a self service counter is set up to prepare your own pot of tea.

At 3pm we were allowed to enter the buffet and lined up in front of the mouth-watering delicacies.
