Ive been here for lunch numerous times. Each time it hits the spot! Not like a usual japanese curry that you'd expect. Very Spicy and can rate your spice levels. If you include coconut milk, it toans it down and very pleasant. The restaurant itself id basic, and mainly sell the soup curry but to be honest you dont need... More

I'm not a huge fan of Japanese curry and thought that the soup curry here would have a similar taste. I was wrong! I read that soup curry is a local Hokkaido treat and that is definitely true. You can customize your soup in all ways imaginable. I loved it!

Having had soup curry for the first time in Sapporo a few days before going to Niseko, I thought it was tasty but passable. But the cold winter slopes of Niseko makes you want want to soak in an onsen (Japanese hot spring) or eat something spicy like soup curry or BOTH! :) So we walked 20mins in the cold... More

They provide not only soup curry but also some other "Izakaya" menus. So we could enjoy some small dishes with cold beer as a starter then soup curry as main. You can chose "hot level" of your curry as you want. Also can order extra toppings. I liked their seasonal vegetable curry as their vegetables was fresh and savory.

Popped into tsubara tsubara after reading a few reviews. Did not disappoint. Well worth the walk from Hirafu village centre. Both my wife and I had the Japanese style chicken meatball curry. Original broth spice level 5. We regularly eat spicy food and this was nice and warm for us. Highly recommend this restaurant for the lovely food and friendly... More

Delicious Japanese curries. If you like a curry (Indian or Thai), come and try this. Its a bit different and really, really good. You can choose what to add. You can walk here easy...about 10-15 minutes down the road going out of town towards Kutchan. There is a large wooden sign for the area, "Izumikyo." Turn left and you will... More

This place is a little way out of town but well worth the visit. The big bowls of steamy soup curry are delicious and pretty healthy, with lots of veggies. You can choose your hotness rating, and also add extra meat etc to the top of your soup curry, after skiing it was so good and warm! Would definitely go... More

Honestly - I am IN LOVE. I dragged my friends here (well they very happily came along) 3 times! Seriously the most amazing hearty, homely delicious meals ever! The broth takes them two days to make. You can ask for the level of hotness you want...1 up to 20. I had 8, which was AMAZING, then 10 and third time... More
