A yen for Warwick Cream Teas!
In October we had the privilege of setting up a pop-up Thomas Oken Tea Rooms in Japan, at the invitation of Hankyu Department Store. What a fabulous experience! We took part in two British Cultural Fairs, one in Fukuoka and the other in Osaka. Not a lot of time for sight-seeing, though; we were making up to 2000 scones a day and visitors were literally running to join the 2 hour queue at the tea rooms door. We cannot thank our Japanese hosts enough for their kindness, generosity and good humour. It was certainly a highlight of 2016!
