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

Eight people on a snowy winter night ventured into this restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised! We were taken to a table, shoes removed and seated traditional Japanese style on the ground. We ordered a variety of soup curries, I chose the Japanese style curry with level 8 hotness in traditional soup, added venietian sausage and standard plate of rice.... More

High on my list for best value dining in Niseko, Tsubara Tsubara specializes in Hokkaido's own 'Soup Curry'. Choose your soup style (Veggie, Japanese, Chicken, Seafood etc) add some toppings (different veggies or an additional meaty morsel) then dial up the heat.
