Urban Resort – Day 2



On the morning of the second day, the summer sky spread out on the horizon with heart shaped clouds.


At breakfast we could enjoy the fresh vegetables grown at “Ebihara Farm”, and Pierre Hermé Paris’ croissants which is served only at Executive House Zen.


There is also hotel bread, cereal, yogurt, rice porridge and soup.


The “Ebihara Farm” vegetables from New Otani’s dedicated farm are so sweet and savory.

I particularly liked the purple sweet potato.


The 20 cm croissant which is said to be the best in the world, is truly delicious.  I wanted to eat many more.


I topped the rice porridge with most of the condiments provided.
