Great Sushi and it's surprising derivatives. Cosy atmosphere and nice decoration. Brilliant service.

Would definitely pick over other options like Sushi Village. Harajuku is much more chilled out and the food is incredible. Popular favourite of mine!

This place is tucked away, off the main drag but is well worth the effort. The setting is quite authentic. I’ve spent a considerable amount of time in Japan and many restaurants are wooden, rough (in a good way) places - cooking smells waft around,...More

We couldn't eat in, this time (i've done before) but food is definitely better in. The octopus balls were great, and bowls were great but the $20 fish was really small and could have been packaged better.

Great atmosphere in this little restaurant. I had a personal tapas-style meal of small plates, overall they were very good. The takoyaki was unique, potentially a bit overcooked, but delicious nonetheless. If I ever get back to Whistler, I will look forward to returning here!

A little heavy on the sauce with the chicken. Highly recommend the Cod dish. They are small servings meant for sharing so you'll need to order a variety of dishes. Deep fried green tea cheesecake with cream and ice cream was interesting. Happy hour is...More

We went to harajuku on recommendation from friends but were unfortunately disappointed on many levels. First, we booked a table that wasn’t ready, so had to stand in the over crowded door way for 15 minutes. Then, our server made it very difficult for us...More

We were looking for something different and this restaurant was hidden away overlooking the car park behind the conference centre. This is a local take on an izakaya. We ordered a wide selection including some sushi. It’s not classical izakaya. I’ve always enjoyed the ‘food...More

Description
"Izakayas" are informal Japanese gastropubs popular throughout Japan known for serving tapas-style food. Located in the Royal Bank Building in Whistler Village, Harajuku's interior is inspired by a Japanese village in the early 1900s. Our cosy nooks and large booths make it suitable for locals and visitors alike. We offer a great selection of sake, draft beer and sake margaritas!!
