Shiseido Parlor

Hello :)

Ginza area has many historic restaurants and shops.

I would like to introduce Shiseido Parlor today.

Shiseido Parlor was built in 1902 as a Soda fountain which provides ice cream and soda for the first time in Japan.

Later, it started as a western restaurant in 1928 earnestly.

It was a pioneer of the western restaurant in Japan and was a symbol of the Ginza.

Japan had isolationist policy until 1854. After the opening of the country, a lot of western culture flew in Japan.

Rice omelet is typical dish which raised in original way in japan after opening of the country.

Rice omelet

Dinner course of the fall taste started from 21st Oct.

You can enjoy oyster, deer meat, Matsutake mashrooms.

And the desert is Shiseido parlor’s traditional one.

If you want to feel Japanese nostalgic which mixed with western, how about to go to the Shiseido Parlor ?



Check it out ; )
