Christmas dishes and desserts in Japan are influenced mainly by delightful festive Western delicacies. Even though Christmas isn’t celebrated as a traditional family holiday in Japan like in some Western countries, it has become a popular time for festive meals and tasty desserts. 

People in Japan widely embrace the occasion, especially when it involves savoring unique dishes and sweets. Get ready to discover the mouthwatering treats that bring people together in the heartwarming spirit of Christmas. Here are some places where you can enjoy Christmas dishes this season!


When it comes to the year-end festivities, one must pay attention to the sweet and trendy offerings from the renowned Starbucks Japan. Following the success of last year’s Christmas Frappuccino, Starbucks is introducing an impressive menu for the 2023 holiday season with the charming theme “Wish upon a Starbucks Holiday.” The Strawberry Merry Cream Frappuccino and the Strawberry Merry Cream Tea Latte are standout items on this menu.

The Strawberry Merry Cream Frappuccino is a perfect blend of various elements: the sweet and tart flavor of strawberry sauce, the creamy richness of vanilla, a hint of mild bitterness from blended iced coffee, and the soft and fluffy layer of “merry cream” on top. 

Meanwhile, with Earl Grey tea taste, the Strawberry Merry Cream Tea Latte delivers a delightful and soothing experience for those sipping it. Both look incredibly vibrant and sparkly, with a shimmer from strawberry powder and silver sugar sprinkled on the creamy layer.

Besides these two fantastic drinks, Starbucks’ holiday menu also features must-try beverages such as the renowned Creme Brulee Latte and Gingerbread Latte. Primarily, they all come with two options, hot and iced, allowing customers to choose according to their preference and comfort. In addition, the delectable treats to accompany your Starbucks experience include Almond Chocolate Roll, Strawberry Merry Cream Cake, and Cranberry Bliss Bar.

Krispy Kreme

Every Christmas, Krispy Kreme stores in Tokyo introduce adorable donuts with seasonal shapes and flavors. Typically, they release around five Christmas-themed donuts, each with different tastes and shapes. The two most popular choices among the Japanese are the Pistachio Wreath and Caramel Christmas Bear.

The Pistachio Wreath always leaves a delightful impression with its highly festive appearance and a unique flavor from special cashews. This donut is loved by both children and adults in Japan.

You won’t be able to resist the cuteness of the Caramel Christmas Bear. This donut features a Santa hat design on a bear-shaped pastry. The doughnut is covered in a sweet caramel coating and filled with a smooth milk caramel cream. Moreover, the bear’s face is decorated with delightful white, milk, and dark chocolate layers. The cute nose is made from white chocolate, and its adorable ears and eyes are crafted with dark chocolate.
