Guests with food allergies
At Hakone Hanaori, we prepare various dishes in the same kitchen, making it difficult to determine the possibility of allergens entering the food. Therefore, with the safety of our guests in mind, we do not have special menus for guests with allergies, or a list of possible allergens. We ask guests to consider the above, and decide for themselves whether to enjoy the food we serve. Thank you for your understanding. If you have food allergies but wish to join your group for meals, please feel free to bring frozen or microwavable meals. If you wish to do this, please let us know when you make your reservation.
