    Located along the approach to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Dankazura Kosuzu is a charming soba and warabi mochi shop with a swaying willow and looks like it could appear in a historic drama.

The warabi mochi starch dumplings are made with rare domestically grown bracken starch, and their chewy yet melt-in-your-mouth texture has delighted many tourists. The shop’s warabi mochi can also be brought home as a souvenir.

    Kanagawa Pref. Ashigarashimogunhakonemachi Yumotochaya 183
    This soba noodle restaurant, located towards the back of Takidori in Hakone-machi, Ashigarashimo County, Kanagawa Prefecture, is famous as it has been covered many times in the media including in magazines. Each day, it serves only 15 portions of its popular 20/80 flour/buckwheat flour ratio noodles from carefully selected buckwheat seeds stone-ground with their shells on. The Seiro 10/90 flour/buckwheat flour ratio noodles in which buckwheat seeds are ground without the shell are sweeter and you will be able to enjoy the original flavour of the buckwheat. The noodles dipped in duck soup using duck breast from Aomori are also popular.

    二八そば、一九そばのが大変美味しい蕎麦屋さんです。箱根湯本温泉の奥のほうにあり、昼の2時までしか営業していない店です。天ぷらも美味しく、利き酒セットも格別です。サービスも行き届いており、また訪ねたい店です。

    This is a famous shop in a spot next to the shore of Lake Ashi in Hakone Town, Ashigarashimo County, Kanagawa Prefecture, and it has even been featured on television. Here one can enjoy painstakingly handmade soba noodles with specially picked ingredients such as brown buckwheat sourced from a contract farm. The Juwari Soba (“100 Percent Soba”) is a popular dish limited to just 20 per day and often sells out soon after the restaurant opens. Other popular menu items include “Seiro” with the original flavor of the soba, “Tenseiro” with the addition of freshly-fried tempura, and dishes that represent the different Hakone seasons including Sakura Oroshi Soba in summer and Jinenjo Soba (“Japanese Yam Soba”) in winter.

    Like an earlier poster, we stumbled on the wonderful restaurant, looking for tempura after the lake cruise. The tempura was excellent and very filling, and as noted, the draft Asahi was very...

    Kanagawa Pref. Ashigarashimogunhakonemachi Motohakone 160-90
    This soba restaurant is about a five-minute walk from Togendai Station on the Hakone Ropeway. The authentic Japanese interior offers a wonderful view of Lake Ashi and a subdued atmosphere in which you can enjoy your meals. The soba is made with Hokkaido stone-ground grade-one flour and is completely organic, allowing for a truly natural taste. The thin noodles complement the dried bonito and mackerel soup stock perfectly. Among the options are “sanroku soba,” made with amazingly flavorful “sanroku pork,” and “tennen ebi (natural shrimp) tenzaru” soba. The soba filled with Izu seaweed is another popular choice.

    This place offers great noodles right next to the lake in a traditional manner. If you are looking for a good place to eat, with relatively low prices and a traditional setting, definitely stop by!

    Kanagawa Kamakura-shi Komachi 1-7-6
    This soba noodle restaurant stands on Komachi-dori Street in Kamakura City. Established in 1964, here customers can eat country-style soba noodles made by the hands of the Nagano-born owner. The restaurant's noodles are primarily made with buckwheat flour from Nagano and have the distinct firmness and flavor of country-style noodles; customers can also enjoy sobayu, the flavorful water used to boil the noodles. The firm, chewy noodles go great with the restaurant's slightly sweet tare dipping sauce. The restaurant offers both hot and cold soba noodles, but the owner particularly recommends the tororo soba noodles with grated yam; the springy noodles pick up the grated yam well. Noodle-making demonstrations are also held at the front of the establishment, and you can watch if your timing is right.

    Its a really small place on the side street from kouachi dori. Usually they have long lines but it moves real fast. Our kids love this place.

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.
