From September 1st (Fri) to October 31st (Tue), Sheraton Miyako Hotel Osaka will hold a special event called “French Cuisine Served by Tokugawa Yoshinobu” in its Restaurant & Lounge Eu. It offers a recreation of the banquet food that Yoshinobu served during official meetings held with various countries’ envoys in the third year of the Keio era (1867).
The event is in conjunction with the “Bakumatsu/Ishin 150 Years” campaign that will be held in Osaka Castle’s Tenshukaku. Tokugawa Yoshinobu (15th Tokugawa Shogun) entered Osaka Castle right around the end of the Edo Period, back when it was a scene of turbulent politics. On May 2, 1867, separate meetings were held in the inner citadel of Osaka Castle with envoys from England, the Netherlands, and France. The menu Yoshinobu arranged for these meetings was recorded in an official document that also held details on these meetings. With assistance from Hiroshi Kitagawa, the curator of Osaka Castle’s Tenshukaku, the same ingredients from the time have been carefully selected. A course arranged in a modern style will be served.
The end of the Edo Period is looked upon as a time of romantic adventure. Enjoy the historic food and let your mind travel back in time!
