Qantas celebrates Tokyo flights with sashimi, sake, green tea Kit-Kats

Qantas is serving up a selection of Japanese dishes, drinks and sweet treats as it celebrates the launch of its Sydney-Haneda and Brisbane-Narita flights.

Guests at the Qantas First Lounge in Sydney can look forward to Kingfish sashimi with daikon, sesame, togarashi and organic soy...

... and a special Japanese-inspired cocktail designed by the airline's team of Rockpool mixologists.

Dubbed the Yukkuri Fizz, after the Japanese word for 'take it easy' or 'unwind', it's based on sake and vodka and will be served at the Sydney and Melbourne international first class lounges until Tuesday August 4.

Beef yakitori with sesame salad will be on offer at Sydney's Qantas Business Lounge, while the Qantas Business Lounge at Brisbane will feature miso soup with soba noodles and tofu.

Business class passengers on the flights to Narita and Haneda will enjoy a delectable tuna tataki nigiri starter accompanied by Kirin Ichiban beer or Ozeki sake, with Green Tea-flavoured Kit Kats for those in the premium economy and economy cabins.

The special dishes will run through until next week.

That's all very nice Qantas but Japanese Kit-Kat's just don't stack up to the amazing full Japanese menu (that's in addition to the full western options 'plural') SQ offer in J class on their flights to Japan versus the Qantas menu. I would say SQ Japan flights with their full 2 course bento box options are the most beautiful meal service I've experienced.
