Many afternoon tea events across Japan have a menu that leans towards Western cuisine, but if you're after a more Japanese inspired offering The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho has got you covered.

There will be savory menu items like vegetable inari zushi and wagyu sushi, and sweets such as chocolate yokan (a Japanese confection made from red bean paste, agar, and sugar) and mitarashi dango (rice dumplings coated in a sweet soy sauce glaze).
The price per head for the afternoon tea is ¥ 6,500.
The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho is located just a minute on foot from Akasaka Mitsuke Station, which is served by the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line or Marunouchi Line (via the Akasaka underground walkway D towards Kioicho). Alternatively, the venue is directly linked to Nagatacho Station on the Tokyo Metro Nanboku Line - take exit 9A.
