Walking from Upper / Missle Hirafu, this is a must-do for a lunch break off the mountains. Lots of choices but beware of the spice if you can’t handle (a cold draft Saporro helps).

A great eat for a very reasonable price. Only draw back may be the noise given the volume of tourists.

Came here for lunch bc all the options on the mountain were expensive and mediocre. Really great flavours. Husband had chicken with coconut soup and daughter had the meatballs in original soup. Chose 3 for spice but could have done 4-5 I think. Also served...More

Tsubaratsubara is a soup curry restaurant and more! The soup curry is great with levels 1-20? Level 1-5 are free but levels 6 onwards you need to top up. I feel that level 5 still wasn't too spicy but I'm Asian so, caveat emptor! We...More

First lunch of the trip and what a way to start. Basically one dish but so many ways to customise it. Favourite was chicken balls and coconut soup. Good for kids too with a kids dish for younger children and you can chose your ‘spice’...More

Delicious Hokkaido style soup curry! Perfect for a freezing day after skiing. Although it is not in the Hirafu Village, the restaurant is easily accessible and only minutes away by taking the East Village (yellow sign) shuttle. It is worth a trip!
