Get there before 12pm because the waiting queue will be much shorter. Better to take a waiting token first. After getting the token, you may have a walk around Gora Station and go back to the restaurant around 30 minutes later. For lunch hour, you may have to wait around 30 minutes to 1 hour. The dishes are good. Pork... More

My husband and I visited the restaurant on a Saturday afternoon and it was crowded with people. We waited for about one hour to get into the restaurant and the food is great. Their specialty is their tofu meal set. A deep fried soba-filled tofu sandwich cooked in thick sauce and warmed in a hotpot, complete with soup, appertiser, drink... More

Went to this small little place with millions, (OK!exaggerating a little) thousands of people waiting outside. Get there wayyyy before 12pm or wayyyy after 1:30pm to avoid waiting in line forever. There's a little machine to key in the number of diners in your party and which kind of seating arrangement, low tables for traditional Japanese feel or tables and... More

This is one of the mustry-try-restaurants on my list during my trip in Hakone. Dragging ou luggages from Gora stn to this place was quite tiring as the road quite hilly. When we arrived around 1pm, there were already packed up, around 10people in front of the main entrance of the restaurant. There were signs in English about this restaurant,... More

When we arrived we had to take a number. The wait was worth, try the signature dish made with tofu. Not too pricey neither and the atmosphere was very traditional. Be careful selecting ur number, because If u don't want to sit on the floor they have the Resturant area with tables and this will be chosen when taking a... More

its possibly the best dining experience i had in Japan in the last trip. I had to queue up for about 30 mins to get a seat when we arrived Goro at around 12:30. But the inside atmosphere was very traditional and spacious. Must try the Tofu set and the pork chop. The total bill for 2 was aroundJPY4500. ITs... More

I had dinner here. Ordered breaded pork tonkatsu. The meat is so oily that I can still feel the oil in my stomach after hours and it is not cheap at ~3200yen per portion. My partner ordered the tofu sandwiched with minced port tonkatsu at ~2090yen. It is lighter and thus eatable. I would say this is the most not... More

We've been to tamura ginkatsutei for dinner yesterday. It was a recommondation of the hotel stuff in hyatt regency and we weren't disappointet.

Awesome tofu dishes! Always a queue means it must be good. We met local Hakone residents and tourist dining at this restaurant.

Go straight for the Tofu Teishoku or the Tofu Gozen set if you're feeling hungry! We also tried the Ebi Fry with tonkatsu set, but that's really not as good as the Tofu sets, because we've tasted better tonkatsu elsewhere. Perhaps the pure Tonkatsu set would've tasted better with a better cut of pork. It opens at 17:30, and its... More
