A new addition to all the wonderful culinary experiences you can have is the standing beer bar located just steps from Odawara Station. The Hakone Beer bar features a number of local brews created and produced by the local Hakone Beer Brewery.

Odawara Station Beer Bar

There are interesting and delicious brews on tap that reflect the character and personality of different local regions. You can choose from Odawara Ale, Hakone Pilsner, Ashigara Weizen, Koyurugi Brown, and Kazamatsuri Stout. The beers are made made using the finest ingredients and from spring water from the base of the Hakone mountains. The Hakone Beer has won a number of awards in domestic and international competition for it`s wonderful blend or hops and barley.


Hakone Beer is made by Suzuhiro in harmony with nature and to compliment the subtly flavors and tastes of Japanese foods. The beer bar also has an eclectic menu of local specialties, such as kamaboko, that go incredibly well with the local beer. Kamaboko is a local Odawara specialty that resembles a pate or sausage of fresh ground fish.


The shop is just steps from Odawara station. The convenient location makes it a great stop on your way to or from Odawara Castle or when you are on an exploration of the beautiful city. The shop closes at 6:00pm so enjoy early.


Odawara and Kamaboko

Odawara is a beautiful city located between the calm bountiful shores of Sagami Bay and the mountains of Hakone. Sagami bay opens up into the Pacific Ocean and has been a resource providing Odawara with a wonderful and eclectic selection of fish.


Fish is the essential part of making kamaboko, but what sets the area apart from other places in Japan is the proximity to the mineral rich spring water filtered through the Hakone mountains. These two factors lead to exceptionally tasting and textured kamaboko.


Odawara is also an important stop on the famed Tokaido Road leading from the imperial and cultural capitol of Kyoto and the commercial and political capitol of Tokyo. Travelers along this road have enjoyed Odawara and Suzuhiro products for generations. We invite you to experience the same.
