Delicious tonkatsu

Near Gora station, we found Tonkatsu Rikyu while looking for lunch. Initially, we were the only ones in the restaurant. Simple establishment. A wood counter with about 10 seats. A prep area and kitchen are in front of the counter. And an old man and two women. For just over 3,000 Yen, we... read more

Doesn't like foreigners. Even with my broken Japanese in an attempt to break the ice, he was unwilling to explain his menu. The place certainly wasn't busy. The pork was ok but I've had better. Certainly marred by the borderline hostile take it or leave it service. There's no room for that in any part of the world. And at... More

Stumbled across this one just around the corner from Gora train station. Walked past just before 2PM and it was about half full (10 seat restaurant). Decided to waste our 2:30 train ticket back to Hakone because this place just FELT like it had to be good before stepping inside. Just one old man does all the cooking and he... More

I will never be eating here at all. We tried to get in 3 times and the man was very rude all three times. I guess he doesn't need to be nice as his shop is always full. Maybe he didn't like that we had a child. Whatever it was it seemed very out of character for a Japanese shop... More

We arrived in Gora late in the afternoon after a day of making the Hakone circle. After checking in at our hotel we were warned that the restaurants closed early, but we really did not anticipate just how early. We wandered out from the hotel just after 6 p.m. and found the first three restaurants were no longer accepting diners... More

Wow, who would have ever thought that the best katsu would be at Rikyu?? It's better than anything I've had in Tokyo, Kyoto, and even Osaka! This place is not far off from Gora Station. If you walk on the path from Gora Station towards Gora Park, you'll find it on your right hand side. Note: It is very pricey.... More

My wife and I stumbled across this very small restaurant and couldn't have been more pleased! TheTonkatsu was fantastic. Watching the chef right in front of you pick out the meat, prepare and cook it was a treat. You could tell he takes extreme pride in what he does. If you are in the Hakone area, make sure you find...

I enjoy breaded pork cutlet or 'tonkatsu' and this cannot be missed. Do visit this place for a meal. Great price and hard-to-beat quantity for the YEN.
