Japan’s Café Contrail is located on the main floor of the Hotel JAL City Fukuoka Tenjin, and is known for their maritozzo, a popular Roman sweet that is currently experiencing a popularity boom in Japan. This fall, the cafe is adding new fall themed flavors to the menu, using seasonal fruits, for limited time.

At Hotel JAL City Fukuoka Tenjin, which had its grand-opening this past March, there is an all-day dining space on the main floor that is open to not only their patrons but also to the general public. The restaurant serves a variety of dishes as well as desserts thoughtfully prepared by a patissier, generously using freshly picked ingredients within the Kyushu region.

Their Maritozzo is popular for the use of seasonal fruits and not-so-sweet whipped cream. Now, with the fall themed flavors available for limited time only, this is a must-try for your tea-time snack or a gift to your friends. Enjoy this popular dessert to your heart's content!
