“Excellent Japanese food in a lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We ate here earlier this week and both had the set menu that included grilled fish, tempura, salad, sushi and sashimi.

The food was stunning, great atmosphere and service, after the sake I was glad we were sitting on tatami mats :-)

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or go again- booking recommended

“Fatty Tuna Forever!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

I went to Kikyoya about seven times over the three months I stayed in Hakuba over the winter. Japanese food is so reliable and Kikyoya is no exception, every time

“Hmmmm Tuna”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Make sure you make a booking to come here! It was absolutely packed, with happy customers. The food here was amazing. I had the best Tuna Nigiri ive ever had here - it was so fresh and tender.... and have to mention the Japanese Pancakes & Trio of salmon - the guys went crazy over that stuff!!! I wasn't so keen on the fishy miso soup... but that wont stop me from going back! The chef was friendly and wanted to have a chat at the end of the night - thats always nice.

“Really good seafood with blow fish if you are adventurous”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a popular restaurant with a very good reputation for seafood. The sashimi is fresh and the chef is a joy to watch and chat with. He is licensed to serve blow fish which we had as sushi, grilled and deep fried - the deep fried was the best. Confidently recommended.

“Good traditional japanese food for the brave”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Loved the atmosphere and the good service. Had sushi and loved it altough some of it was a bit to advanced for my taste. But tuna, samon and the basics was lovely! Authentic sit-on-floor seating!
