Gongen Karamemochi権現からめもち

Other Restaurant

This is a rest spot in the grounds of “Hakone-jinja Shrine” in Hakone Town, Ashigarashimo County, Kanagawa Prefecture, offering sweets, light meals and drinks. The famous Gongen Karamemochi is fresh mochi (sticky rice cake) with anko (red bean paste), kinako (roast soy bean flour), sesame, seaweed and grated daikon radishes. They also serve hand-dripped Hakone coffee with divine water. The Ore-no-Udon Aka (“my udon, red”), a popular specialty with tourists even featured on television, is a tasty mix of springy noodles and spicy soup. This is an easy place to visit for lunch or a break while visiting the shrine.

Nice! Very different soup base n Momo flavor Ice cream. Expect long queues at lunch hours.
Great place to dine in chilly weathers.

When you visit Hakone Shinto Shrine, you may want to stop at this place and eat their Udon Ore No Udon Aka. It looks very red and you might think its really spicy, but in fact, it a bid spicy but...

          Kanagawa Areas


          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.
