Arigato and Biggie???

SARATOGA

By Leslie Moniz

Destination:  Hakone Estate & Gardens (Saratoga).
When: Day or night, no restrictions here.
You’ll need: Your Koi fish knowledge.  
Cash factor: Light.

You’ve come to find out that you’re both not really into the bar scene and appreciate serenity and bliss. Well, we have the perfect spot for you. Mosey over to the Japanese Hakone Estate & Gardens. Do a little research on Koi Fish before your date (www.google.com), and drop your new knowledge as you stroll through the property. If it’s the right time of year, the cherry blossoms will be out in full force, so make sure you ask if you can capture your date’s beauty with a photo. Keep with the theme of the date and grab some Japanese cuisine at Dan Izakaya, which is about a 15-minute drive. Throw on some old school Biggie and bust out the car karaoke while you head over.  (Culture, Grub)
