    Kanagawa Pref. Odawarashi Honchou 2-1-30
    A seven-minute walk from Odawara Station, this longstanding Japanese restaurant was founded in 1893, and you can feel the history in the grand castle-like architecture, which is a Registered Tangible Cultural Property. The first-floor dining hall mainly offers set meals and rice bowl dishes, with the “tendon” (tempura bowl) and its rich sesame oil scent being especially popular. The local catch sashimi set is popular as well. Upstairs is tatami seating, where they serve banquet-style “kaiseki ryori” featuring select vegetables and fresh fish caught in Sagami Bay, among other dishes.

    It was a pleasure to dine at this 100+ year old restaurant which specializes in sea food dishes. The food was delicious, service prompt & friendly & the ambiance pleasant. Highly recommended.,

    Kanagawa Odawara-shi Hayakawa 1-banchi no 28
    "The restaurant on the second floor of ""Fishing Port Station TOTOCO Odawara"" is popular for its extensive rice bowl menu. After purchasing a meal ticket, you are informed of the completion of your meal by a number. The menu is diverse, but the ""Totomaru Summit Bowl"" is particularly popular. You can enjoy changing the flavor of the bowl with soy sauce, sesame sauce, or thick seafood broth. The restaurant is popular even on weekdays when it is packed at lunchtime, and on weekends there is a long line of customers. The menu is limited in quantity, so it is recommended to visit the restaurant early."

    2022年の市場食堂巡りの〆は、1日20食限定の小田原丼。12/30の最終営業日は帰省客が多い気がしました。出発が遅かったから限定食はあきらめてました。20分程並んで券売機前に来た所で、店員さんの『小田原丼あと一食で-す』の声!迷わずポチりました。連れは残念ながら海鮮丼。でも、どちらもボリューム満点です。パリパリの鯵の骨フライはラスワンにふさわしい美味しさでした。

    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.

    A long-established beef hot pot restaurant established in 1895. Their signature dish is beef hot pot in which carefully selected Japanese black beef and other ingredients are stewed in a secret sauce, which has been handed down over 120 years. The shabu-shabu using a Nambu ironware pot and the beef yaki-gushi (grilled skewers), in which shoulder ribs are marinated in sauce three times and slowly grilled, are also exquisite.

    Kanagawa Pref. Yokohamashi Naka-ku Tokiwachou 5-58-2
    Katsuretsuan Bashamichi Main Shop is a restaurant which has continued making cutlets as one of the unchanging tastes of Yokohama since it was founded in 1927. Its secret sauce is superb as carefully selected ingredients, special fresh bread crumbs, vegetables and fruit are stewed for two days and set aside for one day. A cutlet brought into Kannai (a part of Yokohama) by a foreign chef was reshaped and transformed into a unique Japanese-style cutlet by the first owner. It is a must-try dish that allows you to feel tradition and commitment. It is one minute walk from Exit 9 at Kannai Station on the Yokohama Municipal Subway Line.
  • Shirasu Wholesaler Tobiccho Benzaiten Nakamise-dori Branch

    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.

    This eatery is about two minutes on foot from Keihin Kyuko Bus's Misakiko Terminal. Run by a long-established fish shop, they serve meal sets and have lots of local regulars. They purchase their fresh fish every morning at nearby Misaki Port. Try their three-piece tuna assortment featuring fresh and meaty otoro, chutoro, and akami maguro. You can also choose a fish from the Maruichi Fish Market next door and they'll prepare it for you. It's a great spot for great fish whether salt grilled, sashimi style, or boiled nitsuke style. The shop's particularly crowded on Saturdays and Sundays, but it's worth waiting in line.

    平日の12時半ごろに伺いました。 三崎港の周りにはそんなに人はいなかったのですが、こちらのお店はとても混雑していました。タイミングよく待たずに席に通して頂けました。 マグロを食べに来ていたので、他のお魚も魅力的でしたが、まぐろ三種定食を頼みました。 一切れ一切れがとても大きくて10切れで大満足でした。

    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.

Kanagawa 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.
