[NARAYA CAFE] comes into view right after you come down the hill outside of the Miyanoshita Station of the Hakone-tozan Railway. It is a cafe in the renovated building from the [NARAYA] employee dormitory, a ryokan that operated for 300 years. It uses history together with a modern form, for a comfortable, stylish, and nostalgic atmosphere.
The shop is located at the bottom of the hill outside of the Miyanoshita Station of the Hakone-tozan Railway. Search for it by the footbaths!
They use the water that was used at NARAYA! You can use them for free during business hours.
Pay for your orders beforehand, at the counter
You can enjoy your order while you warm up in the foot bath, or relax inside the shop!
There is a blurb about the history of the shop at the end of the menu.
They also have English on their menu, due to the high volume of foreign customers!
You can choose from 〈strained bean paste/sesame bean paste/seasonal bean paste〉 as your topping. I chose sesame bean paste!
I enjoyed the harmony of the gentle flavor of the sesame bean paste and the mild sweetness of the soft cream♪
The second floor of the cafe is a gallery. It is not only used for exhibits; it also has customer seating.
Looking out from my seat on the second floor -
You can feel the warmth of the history ［NARAYA RYOKAN］ through the wooden framework. I had a relaxing and healing time inside.
