Overview

Kamaboko is a traditional Japanese seafood whose history dates back to the 12th century. The museum has wonderful programs and classes that give you the opportunity to get hands on in making, creating, and tasting your own Kamaboko. While you are here, you can watch Suzuhiro's craftsmen using state-of-the-art traditional techniques and gain insight on the tradition and history of this popular Japanese food. Next to the museum, there are a Kaiseki restaurant, a buffet styled cafe, the Hakone brewery, 200-year-old Japanese buildings, a Japanese garden, and shops that sell more than 200 kinds of seafood products, sweets, local beer and sake, and crafts by local artists!
