Shikisai Buffet

Sarah Straus BuffetWe went to an all-you-can-eat, organic, locally grown, Japanese buffet in Hamura today.  It was clean, fresh, and tasty and is owned by the same people as ZonaVoce.  There was yakisoba, tempura, curry, three kinds of rice, pickled dishes, and salad.  I particularly enjoyed the stewed and fried fish dishes and desserts including sweet beans, tangerines, and sugar toast.  Hours: lunch 11:30am-2:30pm, dinner: 5:30pm-9:30pm.  Lunch price is ¥1200 for adults and ¥600 ages 5 to 11. Validated parking available at the hotel.

Sarah Straus BuffetDirections:  Shikisai Buffet is located inside the Plaza Inn in Hamura, just outside the Hamura train station.  To drive there, go straight out the Fussa Gate onto Route 165.  At the fork in the road stay to the right, as if you were driving to Fussa Train Station.  Turn right onto the road with Seiyu.  Pass the main Seiyu building on your left.  Continue 2.3 km.  Turn left one light past Route 163 at the street with a McDonalds on the far, right corner.  The Plaza Inn is one block down on the left.  GPS coordinates: 35.75905, 139.316719.   -Anna Quan- Schmoldt, February, 2013, photos S.

  1. Wow! What a treat. Shikisai is easily as wonderful as its sister ZonaVoce – fresh, clean, and delicious. Watch the chef cook and bring out new dishes to set on the central serving area. I really enjoyed the fresh vegetables, potato salad, and tempura. This was a great introduction of Japanese food for my visitors too with its Japanese curry, rice, soup and bean dessert. Just like ZonaVoce, amazing coffee! It is located just up the road from ZonaVoce. Yum.

  2. My family and I ate there a few nights ago. The curry, sweet beans, potato and green salad were my favorites, and they have the best coffee!
    Eat here with some confidence if you have a family member with a peanut allergy-we were told that they don’t use peanuts ( it would still be prudent to ask if you go though-just in case there is an item change. We can usually get it across to them if we point to our child and say “no pinatt-su”).
    I will definitely go back but next time I will go for lunch.
