Tokyo?s hotels reveal their Halloween offerings
It is officially the witching month and as everyone gears up for Halloween, some of the best hotels in Tokyo have revealed how they will be getting into the spirit of the occasion.
The Strings by InterContinental Tokyo is offering a special Halloween plate from now until October 31st.
Comprising three types of chocolate – dark, milk and white – four varieties of cocktail, edible spooky decorations and a syringe of fake blood, it is bound to excite those who love the season.
Guests are invited to squirt the rum, peach liqueur and cranberry juice cocktail into chocolate shells that end up looking like ghoulish eyeballs.
The flavours of the other specially created cocktails tap into the associations with Halloween, reports the Japan Times.
There’s a rum, carrot juice, maple syrup, ginger and lemon juice concoction; a white chocolate liqueur, milk, pumpkin puree and caramel syrup blend; and an avocado puree, banana liqueur and pineapple juice cocktail.
Visitors can get the entire array for 2,500 yen (£19.63), although it is worth noting that this does not include taxes or service charge.
Meanwhile, the Asakusa View Hotel in the Asakusa neighbourhood of Tokyo is going even further and offering stays with a real Halloweeny feel.
Guests who dress up during their visit will be rewarded with special treats in a bid to fill the restaurants of the hotel with seasonal characters.
A special Halloween version of the popular meal plan will also be available for 9,000 yen (£70.60) per person, including taxes and service charge.
For the fee, diners will enjoy specially decorated plates in the Café de Capitan establishment, located on the first floor at dinnertime.
Breakfast is also included, with a buffet at the 26th-floor sky grill Musashi or sixth-floor Japanese restaurant Karuta.
