Request from Niseko Restaurants

Welcome to Niseko! With over 130 bars, restaurants and in-house catering options, Niseko is evolving into a true gourmet destination. Reservations for many popular establishments are recommended, especially during the peak season. Recently, an increase in last-minute cancellations and “no-shows” has caused problems for restaurants and guests.

On behalf of the restaurants, we request that you…

  1. Notify the restaurant well in advance if you wish to change any details of your reservation.
  2. 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.
  3. Please understand that some restaurants charge for hot and cold water.
  4. Please note that most Japanese pubs serve a small mandatory starter that is added to the bill in lieu of a seating charge.

We hope you find this guide informative. Enjoy your wining and dining experience in Niseko!
