Hakone Japanese restaurant brings together aspects of its namesake’s scenery: the signature mosaic pattern of Hakone’s traditional woodwork known as Yosegi; light and shadows; traditional Japanese materials and colours come together to create an authentic four-part atmosphere.
Hakone expresses the natural beauty of the mountainous town’s famous, precipitous slopes with a centrally located indoor garden. As the Japanese philosophy, Ryotei, dictates that cherished guests are to be received in the innermost area of a space, a sushi bar has been set up near the entrances and guests are invited to dine in special rooms in the centre of the restaurant.
Notably, Hakone serves traditional Japanese cuisine with a modern twist, showcasing the essence of modern Kaiseki. Also on offer is an assortment of Edomae-style nigiri sushi, dishes that incorporate fresh seafood and vegetables, specialty mushrooms, hot dishes, and a variety of side dishes that complement the flavours of the main dish.
