If you have plans to travel to Lake Kawaguchiko, be sure to check out Sanrokuen for an amazing ancient meal experience. The restaurant is just 10 minutes walk from Kawaguchiko Station. Not too complicated if you follow the map. This place serves robatayaki 炉端焼きwhich translates to fireside cuisine. There are various choices of set for you to chose. They also has some a la carte items where you can order extra if you like.
The coals are in front of the main entrance
The fire place where you grill your food.
All fired up.
My chosen set. Fresh!
They will give you instructions on the grilling process, the timing needed to grill each ingredient and the sauce to use. The rainbow trout was especially good. Don’t miss that.
Hoto will be served towards the end of the meal. Be sure to leave room (in your tummy) for this.
For some reason, I just love this kettle.
Food was awesome but this place can be really hot during summer. It’s all open, no AC and can get worst especially the hot coals are right in front of you. I think it will be a very wonderful experience to dine here during autumn or winter which I am planning to.
