FOOD & DRINK

Stay in – and savor a taste of Karuizawa at Shishi-Iwa Kitchen, with exquisite menus as delicious as they are healthy, for both body and mind.

BREAKFAST

Chef Kimiko Hiyamizu has created a special breakfast menu through careful research, using fresh ingredients sourced directly from local farms.

The menu includes seasonal soup, organic vegetables and a special spread of hams and eggs alongside local treats such as wild walnuts and Acacia honey from Karuizawa’s mountains.

DINNER

Shishi-Iwa Kitchen also serves a five-course dinner created by Chef Aki Yamada. The menu introduces local specialities and seasonal ingredients prepared using high quality Japanese and Western culinary techniques.

Seasonal highlights range from freshly-harvested burdock potage and grilled vegetables with persimmon dressing to cherry smoked roasted Akagi beef. Dinner is available from Thursday to Sunday, for up to eight people per sitting. Advance reservations recommended.

SPECIAL EVENTS

In the mood for an extra special dinner with friends and family? Shishi-Iwa Kitchen can arrange for a guest chef to cook for private parties.

Simply choose from a range of top Karuizawa chefs – from the husband-wife duo at Mori Q to the talented Asama Brothers – and enjoy a private pop-up feast in the Grand Room (available for groups of six or more.) Staff can also make reservations for guests at restaurants across Karuizawa or arrange in-house delivery.
