Tucked away from the road this soba restaurant is one of the best in Niseko, watch as the noodles are meticulously made in front of your eyes.

The restaurant is located on the first right off the road up towards the Annupuri ski ground, you can park next to the restaurant called Karabina then you walk across a wooden bridge that is hidden behind the trees to find the restaurant. There is a sign on the door that says rude people are not allowed (this is a traditional when there is a master at work) to come in, essentially they choose you rather than you choosing them! Inside there is only a counter to dine which means places are limited and this due to the fact each bowl of soba is made fresh in front of your eyes. A good thing to order is "Juwari" which is 100% buck wheat soba nooble and a side dish of seasonal vegetable tempura. The evening sitting is by appointment only, this is for one group of people only that means you receive a very personal service, you choose the time and it's ¥5000 per person but cancelling at the last minute is not acceptable.
