Amazake Tea House is a popular tourist destination located in Hakone, a scenic area in Japan known for its hot springs and natural beauty. This historic tea house has been serving visitors for over 400 years and is a must-visit spot for anyone interested in Japanese culture and traditions.

The tea house was originally established during the Edo period, a time of peace and prosperity in Japan, as a place for weary travelers to rest and enjoy a cup of amazake, a traditional sweet and non-alcoholic drink made from fermented rice. Today, visitors can still enjoy a cup of amazake at the tea house, as well as other traditional Japanese treats like mochi (sweet rice cake) and green tea.

The architecture of the tea house is also a draw for visitors, with its traditional thatched roof and wooden beams. The interior is cozy and intimate, with seating for just a few people at a time. The tea house is surrounded by a beautiful garden and offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
