    Kanagawa Pref. Chigasakishi Yanagishimakaigan 18-31
    This is a fisherman’s cuisine restaurant where one can taste fresh fish including transparent “raw shirasu (young sardines).” They are fresh because they come from the first morning catch of their own boat “Asamaru,” which sails the Shonan sea at daybreak. The interior is styled in a way that evokes the atmosphere of the inside of a ship. There is also a children’s menu available and bringing young ones is recommended.

    こんな素晴らしい料理を食べたことがありません。それ上 、メガジョッキで流し込んだ! あさまるを一番推薦します。 I came in on Valentine's Day with my girlfriend. We both really enjoyed the food, especially the fugu tempura and kinmeidai - I was also...

    Kanagawa Pref. Kamakurashi Komachi 2-11-8
    This is a kamameshi (rice, meat and vegetables served in a small pot) specialist in a spot just a three-minute walk from Kamakura Station. They normally offer over 30 varieties of kamameshi made with carefully selected ingredients. The shirasu (young sardines) are particularly popular, often creating a queue during holidays. A rare treat is the ochazuke (rice with green tea poured in) with their specially-made dashi (soup stock).

    Kanagawa Pref. Fujisawashi Enoshima 2-1-9
    This is a popular restaurant for Enoshima’s famous product “Nama-shirasu-don” (a bowl of fresh young sardines topped over rice) which has two locations on Enoshima. The shirasu they use are only fresh fish that were caught that same day. The most popular item is the “Tobiccho-don” in which plenty of fresh fish and raw shirasu are topped over rice with vinegar. Guests should note that the shirasu may be unavailable during January through March when fishing is prohibited or when there has been a poor catch. The “Shirasu-no-kakiage-don” (fritter) is recommended for those who prefer not to eat raw fish.

    We intentionally had a late lunch to skip the line, but we still waited (under 10 minutes). We had read that the food here is great and the reviewers were right! They had the freshest seafood...

  • Tsuruya
    Gourmet / Alcohol
    Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture Yuigahama 3-3-27
    Established in 1929, this is a well-established eel restaurant in Kamakura whose closest station is Enoshimsa Dentetsu’s Wadazuka Station. Thanks to the secret sauce that has not changed over several decades, the plump eel is characteristic for its elegant taste with a subtle sweetness. All of their eel dishes are prepared only after the order is received, so cooking takes about one hour to prepare. It is recommended to visit after making a reservation. Children that are not yet of school age are not allowed.

    Kanagawa Pref. Fujisawashi Enoshima 1-6-21
    A restaurant with a quiet, relaxed atmosphere, Iso Ryori Kimura is located just behind Shotenjima Park beside the Enoshima Yacht Harbor. Inside the restaurant is a large fish tank appropriate of a fisherman’s shop, and the place is popular among both tourists and locals alike. The Half Shirasu-don that is a serving of half raw shirasu (young sardines) and half kama-age shirasu is recommended.

    We ended up here by a happy mistake, not knowing where to tell the taxi to take us. Suitably hungry we went for the closest restaurant and found ourselves upstairs in a bit shabby, but sincere fish...

    刺身は新鮮で美味しく、焼き鳥などのアラカルトもあります。日によりクジラなどもありました。ただ残念なのは店員のバイトがバイト同士で盛り上がってうるさかった。またカウンターに何故かトイレットペーパーが置いてあり食欲が失せました。これは残念過ぎます。

    Kanagawa Pref. Ashigarashimogunhakonemachi Goura 1300-739
    A Japanese restaurant located a two minute walk from Gora Station famous for the lines that can form at its door. Tamura is renowned for its stewed tofu and pork cutlet, made with specially ordered tofu from the renowned Hakone Gin-dofu and a deep fried domestic Japanese ground pork cutlet. The restaurant uses three varieties of carefully selected pork for its tonkatsu cutlets—Waton mochibuta, Fujinomiya kurobuta, and ruibi-buta. The pork roast cutlet gozen meal is also a favorite of diners thanks to the juicy and flavorful pork meat. Diners can enjoy their meal at a table or tatami seating in the restaurant’s subdued, Japanese atmosphere.

    The tofu dish really is awesome. Wish I could find it here at home or recreate. Great place to try if near Gora.

The restaurant is renowned for its wappa-meshi and kama-meshi seafood-topped rice made with an abundance of local ingredients like vegetables harvested from the restaurant’s own farm, Fujisanroku pork, Odawara horse mackerel, and Hime no Mizu yuba tofu skin.

Gin no Ho also offers a wide variety of a la carte items like Japanese pond smelt, a specialty product from Lake Ashi, served deep fried or salted and dried overnight.

    Kanagawa Pref. Ashigarashimogunhakonemachi Yumoto 640
    This restaurant located approximately five minutes on foot from Hakone-Yumoto Station is in a wooden three-story building overflowing with charm on the approach to the Yumoto-bashi Bridge. Built in the early part of the Showa period (late 1920s), it was used as a hot spring lodge and the first floor is open seating while the second floor features private rooms available by reservation. Their famous food is Soun-dofu, made by heating Hakone-Yumoto’s firm tofu in kombu dashi (seaweed stock) and topping with grated Japanese yam flavored with miso. In addition to course offerings, there are also meals and a la carte items, and guests can enjoy creative Japanese cuisine made with tofu and yams.

    Hakones great for for many things:onsen (natural spa bath), traditional Japanese inn, cable car, stinky eggs, and more. Its not very good at a quick, or even a slow meal, as most travellers will...

    Kanagawa Pref. Ashigarashimogunhakonemachi Yumoto 696
    Three minutes on foot from Hakone Yumoto Station, this yuba (tofu skin) specialist is located behind a row of souvenir shops. The interior, renovated from a wooden-structured traditional hotel, is a bright, calm and spacious and customers can look out on to the Hayakawa River from the large windows. It is proud of its cuisine using yuba made with the famous water, Himenomizu, from Taiheidai in Hakone and the most well-known dish is the yuba-don bowl. It is a superb, deeply tasty and nutritious dish with bonito stock soup and yuba simmered in an earthen pot and then mixed with egg.

    Had a really great lunch here this week with delicious food and wonderful service. The restaurant is in a great location, along the banks of the river and has big windows looking out onto the...

Kanagawa Main Areas

around-area-map

Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo’s most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
