Niseko Hirafu Restaurants & Bars

Some of the intimately sized restaurants in Niseko have just a few tables. For these and the many popular establishments, Reservations are recommended, especially during the peak season. 

Last-minute cancellations and “no-show” causes problems for restaurants and for guests. On behalf of the restaurants, we request that you please:

  • Notify the restaurant well in advance if you wish to change any details of your reservation.
  • Be aware that some restaurants request same-day confirmation of reservations or charge a fee for cancellations or no-shows, in line with their cancellation polices.
  • Please note that most Japanese pubs serve a small mandatory starter that is added to the bill in lieu of a seating charge. (Tipping is not required anywhere in Japan.)
