Dear BearDays, Thank you for taking the time to review us. We aim to source Hokkaido produce for as many of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it sounds like we had the pleasure of serving you for all three. Breakfast can be busy...More

We have been to the Kumo about a dozen times so far this trip - mainly lunches on the hill. What a find!!! Coffee (500yen) is the best on the hill - tastes like double shots - not the anemic stuff served elsewhere. And the...chocolate pudding (1000yen) is to die for. Prices for mains (around 1700 yen) are very reasonable. The most popular lunch dishes in our group are the chicken nanban and the tofu dish (which even I think tastes good and normally I don't like tofu). The other dishes on the menu have also not disappointed. The staff (Otabek,Trixie and colleagues) are friendly, helpful and know their menu. There is a good relaxed vibe amongst the staff. If you are on the hill there is a back entrance next to King Pair Lift 1. Leave your skis and boards on the racks, brush of the snow. Thru the door, into the lift, down one floor, walk through the ski concierge, turn left, keep walking past the shop, past the cafe, past reception and into the restaurant.More

We are staying at the hotel and have visited the restaurant twice now. Both were excellent meals and we will almost certainly be back at least once more before the end of the holiday. Our servers were Jocasta on the first night, and then Alex...tonight. Both were lovely people and happy to answer questions about the menu and make recommendations. We had two completely different meals (ok, I confess we had chocolate dessert both nights...) and both were amazing. Keep up the good work and enjoy the season both of you! And say thanks to the guys in the kitchen too... your food is awesome!More

Ski into Skye Niseko and had lunch at Kumo. With all these hotels with restaurants down slopes, plenty of choices and place to eat. This is full service and nice view to the Ace Family lift. Service is good. I had pork rice bowl -...yummy. Has a good selection of beer, wine and cocktails. Menu for lunch is very good. Will need to come back again.More

A trendy cafe serving fusion Japanese & Western food at a new luxury ski hotel. Ambience was cozy & yet casual. Food quality was reasonably well but not outrageously priced. We loved the grilled pork shoulder & snow crab congee of this dinner. Pork was...very flavorful. Congee was a big surprise with robust flavors from crab roe & meat. If services can get a bit better, I will give another star for the very good value for money being offered.More

Hirafu in June is almost a dead-town, with barely any restaurants open for business. So I was glad Kumo was open and ready to feed two hungry, tired and somewhat underdressed travelers. The food was delicious and service topnotch. I especially loved the crab congee...with crab butter, and the Hokkaido beef filet with sea urchin butter was incredible. The price was not as expensive as I thought it would be considering the atmosphere and quality - a similar restaurant back in KL would easily cost at least twice more. If I find myself in Niseko in the near or distant future, I'd love to come and dine at Kumo again.More

Very much enjoyed Kumo, pretty much everything else in town is closed at this time of year so not a lot of alternatives but we did dinner twice there and it did not disappoint. Simple menu but adequate choice and well priced. Food quality was...high and wine list, while not overwhelming was more than decent.More
