Teahouse Sekison

By Weekender Editor

Teahouse Sekison is located at Afuri Shrine on the slopes of Mount Oyama in Kanagawa Prefecture.

Befitting a mountain teahouse, the menu offers a combination of light to hearty refreshments predominantly made from local ingredients. In addition to good, strong coffee, local tea comes hot or cold. Tea is also a key element, along with eggs from Sagami no Tamago, in the decadent Seinyuchaka Tiramisu.

Tender strips of Isehara beef rest atop steaming white rice all nestled in a beautiful ceramic bowl, while galettes (savory crepes) use local buckwheat flour, baby salad greens, fresh eggs and thin strips of salmon. Regional growers and producers also provide the tea, adzuki beans and milk for souvenirs.

Directions: From Isehara Station take Bus #11 to the Oyama Cable Car Bus Stop. Ride the cable car to the last stop. Alternatively, from the cable car bus stop, hike up 45-minutes to the shrine.

Address: 大山12 Isehara, Kanagawa 259-1107
