Niseko Japanese Restaurants are not surprisingly one of the biggest categories. From casual Yakitori, Yakiniku, Udon and Izakayas up to higher end Kaiseki, Sushi and Soba
Asian restaurants are one of the fastest growing categories in Niseko in part due to the large percentage of tourists from Hong Kong, China, Singapore and Malaysia. Quality varies as much as variety with the better restaurants usually located within the new brand of high-end hotels being built in Niseko.
Bars and Pubs are mainly located in Hirafu where all of the action is. They have been around since early days since skiing and apres ski drinks go hand-in-hand. There is a nice range of quality and selection available whether beer, wine, sake or whiskey is ones preference. Luxury experiences are almost always located in Hotels whereas standalone pubs cater to the younger crowd.
