An Authentic Taste of Kamakura at Kamakura Matsubara-An AO

Following in the footsteps of our original Kamakura Matsubara-An soba restaurant near Yuigahama, Kamakura Matsubara-An AO brings our guests on the same unforgettable culinary journey around Kamakura.

The spacious contemporary restaurant on the first floor of HOTEL AO KAMAKURA, creates simple yet divine dishes served against the backdrop of the shoreline. Guests can choose from a variety of freshly made soba noodles and seasonal ingredient-focused à la carte dishes.
Our famous flavorsome nihachi soba noodles, which pair perfectly with our original dipping sauce, are handmade using traditional techniques and thinly sliced in the Edo-mae style.
Underpinned by our deep-rooted respect for the Kamakura coast and mountains, our menu is based on fresh and seasonal produce. We source the best local ingredients, including freshly caught seafood from Sashima Fishing Port and vegetables grown in the rich soil of the Miura Peninsula.
Our wide selection of hand-picked sake, craft beers, and natural wines brewed at local breweries (including Kumazawa Shuzo) match perfectly with our cuisine.
We look forward to introducing you to the finest local flavors at HOTEL AO KAMAKURA.
