Sample Itinerary

 3-Day, 2-Night Activity Highlights

Recommended Food

Indulge in Japanese cuisine from a specially curated list of dining establishments, hidden gems known to locals of Hayama and Kamakura. We feature a list of culinary experiences from hand-pulled noodles to gourmet Kaiseki meals and omakase sushi dining.  

Enjoy fresh hand-pulled soba noodles at a previously converted private home turned restaurant, nestled in Hayama's residential area. Dine at a highly praised sushi restaurant tucked away in a private residential neighbourhood. The chef behind the phenomenal sushi that melts in your mouth is a modest and humble leading sushi master in his mid-twenties. Savour an elaborate Kaiseki dining experience at a Japanese restaurant with a warm and inviting atmosphere, headed by a master chef and his wife. The chef's talent and culinary finesse shines in his dishes, each prepared with the freshest local ingredients in harmony with the season and elegantly plated on perfectly selected plates.
