Rakuichi Soba at Niseko Village cames with strong recommendation and the booking for the Omakase Dinner was made months before we arrived. While you can eat these dishes in various eateries, it is the combined experience of a well-served course by course meal which makes...More

Was chuffed to see soba master Tatsuro Rai personally cutting the soba noodles. I was in awe and I believe watching handmade soba being made in front of me by a legend helped make this the best soba experience of my life.

This was an amazing experience. In a restaurant that seats approx 12 people only. Every dish in the degustation menu was impressive. It was an honour to watch the soba noodles being prepared, and our host Midori made the experience memorable.

Hand made soba noodles - great! I usually like to eat soba, but won’t really rave about it, because to me, soba is just a type of noodles that we can easily cook/boil with plain water and dip in the sauce and eat. However, the...More

Soba is freshly made before your eyes after you order. They offer hot or cold soba for lunch with and without duck soup. My recommendation is to go for the cold soba with duck soup. This way you can enjoy both hot and cold. The...More
