The slice of raw fish whether served as a sushi or sashimi is thick and the taste biting into it is creamy and yummy! The accompanying miso soup is a real delight too with chunks of fish in it too. The chef is definitely generous with his ingredients and a meal here is certainly value for money.

I have to say, Hie in Echoland is very good, but we enjoyed Kikyo-ya just that little bit more! The Sashimi was deliciously creamy and smooth in texture, the Maguro was divine and the miso with chunks of fish mixed in was out of this world. The beers were fresh, the Sake from Nigata a real treat, and chef, owner... More

If you are looking for a great night out with great food and great service this is the place to eat in Hakuba. We have been many times and have not been disappointed ever. There is a diverse menu but if you are a sashimi fan you will be in heaven. Try and book a seat at the bar, if... More

We had dinner one night at Kikyoya during our stay in Hakuba. It was the highlight of our restaurant experiences in Japan. We arrived in Japan with very little knowledge of the culture, language and cuisine in Japan (long story, won't bore you). Usually we do much better homework before a trip, but this time we were clueless. Well, not... More

Good food. Excellent sushi platter which we watched the chef prepared. Intimate, fun and delicious. Chef has a great sense of humour and very welcoming to foreigners. Lots of locals dining there which indicates food is good. Very enjoyable night and family friendly.

Very impressive family run Restaurant with an extensive menu. Terrific service, and the owners speak English and are happy to have a chat. If you don't want to sit on the floor request a stool at the bar when making reservations.

Had dinner here on our last night in Happo. Needed a taxi to & from as the restaurant is in Hakuba town. The menu was extensive & the food plentiful. Not cheap but great quality. The chef is a character & the atmosphere very friendly & welcoming. The temptation of the blow-fish sashimi was too much. Would definetely go back... More

A really genuine little joint. Easy to read menu (and not too hard to decide either!) Great range of really good food which is then made right in front of you. Delicious and an experience.

a bit of a letdown after all the rave reviews, but in reality, good sushi at a pretty decent price... best was the ikura and the miso soup
