Asahidake Restaurants & Dining

For lunch, the best option is the restaurant upstairs in the Asahidake ropeway station. In addition to food pictures, a recent addition has been a menu in English. The fare on offer includes various ramen options and rice dishes; the chicken katsu curry being a favourite. Dining here is great value for money.

The shop downstairs in the ropeway building sells karaage, pork buns and other snack foods.

For evening dining, the only option is your hotel and all the Asahidake hotels offer half board packages with breakfast and dinner included. The inclusion of meals can be somewhat costly, but considering the quality of the cuisine, you get decent value.

Or K’s House Hostel is self catering within a large communal kitchen. You’ll need to BYO supplies.

Asahidake Bars & Nightlife

There is a complete absence of nightlife in Asahidake Onsen and there are no après-ski activities except to have an onsen, a couple of beers or Chu-His from the vending machine, and dinner. Most powder hounds are just happy to save their energy for the powder!

A couple of the Asahidake hotels have bars, which are typically very quiet and frequented only by the hotel guests. La Vista Daisetsuzan Hotel has a nice bar lounge located in the robby (as the Japanese like to call the lobby!).
