Gastronomic Delights Await

Niseko-yo ushers in a culinary renaissance to Niseko, solidifying its reputation as an eternal haven for epicureans with several pioneering gastronomic delights. At the forefront is ‘Gogyo powered by Ippudo’, renowned globally for its ramen mastery. By daylight, it tantalises with its distinctive ramen and coveted side dishes. As twilight envelops the village, it metamorphoses into a vibrant izakaya, unveiling a spectrum of flavours derived from seasonal ingredients, impeccably grilled.

The gastronomic odyssey is further enriched with Baby Crosta, the latest addition to the internationally acclaimed pizza brand Crosta Pizzeria. Making the list of the Top 10 Pizzerias in Asia-Pacific and bringing home the World Pizza of the Year 2023 award from 50 Top Pizza, Crosta adds its unique approach to pizza by launching the first-ever Roman-style pizza in Japan’s powder haven. Moreover, the experience is elevated at Pizza Bianca, an intimate chef’s table nestled within. Led by Chef Yuichi Ito, awarded the Best Pizzaiolo 2022 in Japan, this will be the first Pizza Omakase experience in Niseko, taking pizza indulgence to an unparalleled art form.

Further culinary highlights include the mouthwatering yakiniku of Hokkaien, Long Tang’s delectable dim sum that transports one to Shanghai, the artful sushi and tempura presentations of Yang Shu Ten, authentically crafted Italian delicacies with Japanese precision by Moka, and the spicy allure of Chuan’s celebrated Sichuan hotpot.

Entrusted with the responsibility of creating wayfinding sculptures, Woo masterfully offers a harmonious blend of heritage and contemporary design. His evocative pieces serve as more than mere aesthetic landmarks; they are storytellers, narrating Hokkaido’s rich folklore and traditions.

Guiding visitors through Niseko’s picturesque vistas are his symbolic creations: the majestic Hokkaido Brown Bear, embodying the might of the wilderness; the playful Red Fox, encapsulating the region’s spirit; and the ethereal ‘snow fairy’, the Long-tailed Tit, paying tribute to Hokkaido’s magical natural lore. At Higashiyama Niseko Village, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Woo’s artistry further unfolds. Outdoor sculptures beautifully mimic snow flurries, and radiant installations shimmer, mirroring the interplay of sun and moon. This continuous celebration of nature’s beauty extends to The Green Leaf, where Emi Shiratori’s creations resonate deeply with every brushstroke, paying a heartfelt homage to Hokkaido’s natural marvels.

As night descends on Niseko-yo, pathways are bathed in luminescence, enhanced by cutting-edge projections that weave traditional and contemporary tales. These illuminated trails are not merely routes but are immersive artistic odysseys.
