A Collaboration of Carefully Selected Ingredients and Craftsmanship
Under the belief of "the quality of soba is determined by the raw ingredients", only Japanese-grown buckwheat seeds are used at Hakone Akatsuki-an. They mix the seeds with spring water from Hakone and grind them with a millstone for better flavor and texture. Enjoy the soba that is created with quality ingredients and the craftsmanship of the chef.
Reasonably Priced Combination Plate of Amazing Soba
The most popular Soba Set （1,500 yen） consists of soba, Akatsuki Tofu that has a wonderful buckwheat and soybean flavor, broiled miso and a pound cake which is made from buckwheat flour. When you take a bite of the popular cake, an aroma of buckwheat and delicate sweetness will fill your mouth.
Enjoying the Flavor of Soba and Duck
