We therefore cannot 100% guarantee that the dish does not contain any allergens other than those labeled.
Please consider it as hypoallergenic rather than non-allergenic and make your own decision whether or not to consume it.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your understanding.
Please contact the hotel in advance when necessary to bring your own meals.

⁃ Japanese Restaurant "WARAKU,"

However, since cooking and dishwashing are done in the same kitchen, allergens other than those labeled may be present in trace amounts.

Please consider it as hypoallergenic rather than non-allergenic and make your own decision whether or not to consume it.
In addition, we may not be able to accommodate customers with severe symptoms, allergies across multiple ingredients, or allergies depending on the severity of the allergy.
For the safety of our customers, we reserve the right to deny use.
