Ashinoko-chaya is located on the bank of Lake Ashi, the very symbol of Hakone. You’ll find the restaurant on the second floor of the facility. The most popular menu item is Hakone kaiun tamatebako (roughly translated as Hakone Lucky Treasure Chest). It is served on eight small plates with various dishes on them that vary depending on the season, enabling the customer to savor many different flavors at once. If you’re visiting on a bright sunny day, you’ll get the special treat on the side - the spectacular view of Mt. Fuji through the large restaurant window. The souvenir and take-out corner is on the first floor. One of the treats you can get is heart-shaped red bean paste cookie called enmusubi-yaki that is sure to charm you with not only its looks, but its taste as well. It takes only 10 minutes by foot to get to Hakone Shrine from the restaurant, so after a delicious lunch you can enjoy a nice walk and visit this sightseeing spot.
