We came here on a snowy morning. The tea house looked charming when everything was covered in a thin layer of snow. Going inside the tea house it was another world. Warm, cozy and the tea house itself was full of history. We sat down,...More

Imagine it’s 3 degrees and you arrive at an old, really old, cottage. You open the doors and you are transported to another time. Worth the visit. It’s the real deal.

Stopped by this place before our hike along the Tokaido stone road. Firstly the building is a fine example of traditional old tea house. Seemed like samurai and royals had rested there in the past. There are pots of tea on the tables that you...More

If I was only rating the food, I'd give this place three stars. The atmosphere is what you should come here for. I felt the amasake drink was much too sweet, especially when coupled with the uguisu mochi. I was there in August so I...More

I went with a large work group and we were seated inside a lovely teahouse with a firepit that would be heated at night. The amazake is a hot, sweet, rice alcohol and it was my first time trying it but it was delicious. I...More

My wife and I visited Amazake-Chaya as part of our round-trip through Hakone. After disembarking from the pirate ship ride at Motohakone, take bus number 5 and it'll stop you right at Amazake-Chaya. Pro-tip: Make sure you check when is the last bus. If you're...More

We made the mistake of hiking the old Tokaido trail just after a night of heavy snow, starting from the cedar road near the old Tokaido checkpoint, and so it look much longer than expected. We arrived a little before sundown and the owner (who's...More

This is such a historic tea house, the last one standing along the Tōkaidō Road. We met the siblings who have taken over running of this place from their parents - super friendly and great service. Amazake is a sweet drink made from rice and...More
