See in Spring at Aqua Kyoto

This May, Aqua Kyoto will decorate its rooftop terraces with cherry blossom trees to mark the arrival of Spring.

Head chef Jordan Sclare has devised a special menu for the event, including a blossom-pink tempura selection and cherry-blossom ice cream. The flower will also have a cocktail named after it – the Sakura – a mixture of cherry marnier, sake and yuzu.

Sakura (Japanese flowering cherry blossom) is said to bring good fortune and love and its arrival is celebrated in Japan.

The cherry blossom rooftop menu is available throughout May. Main courses start at £14.50.
