A selection of local specially-selected Japanese sake makes a perfect accompaniment to your meal. Enjoy your meal in the new modern restaurant area ‘The SNOW’ or in private banquet rooms.

The seasons in Yuzawa

With beautiful mountainous scenery in every direction, Yuzawa can be enjoyed throughout the year with each distinct season offering something different.

Snowfall transforms everything come winter and on a fine day the white of the snow contrasting with deep blue skies makes for stunning scenery.
