We loved our dinner here, food was fabulous with lots of variety. Staff spoke English really well and were very accommodating and helpful. Being a small restaurant you will need to book. Lovely chat across the tables comparing their day out on the slopes.

Went here on a whim. Wasn't disappointed. Sat at the bar and ordered sashimi, various grilled skewers and sake. Sashimi set Y2,200 was very fresh, can tell by the sweetness of the river shrimp. Cozy place which attracts a lot of locals. Good value overall....More
