One of the best soba in Niseko. If you are in Niseko must visit this place n enjoy the soba as it's freshly made. It's local near Annupuri ski resort.

Just had dinner Sobatei Rakuichi. Staying at Grand Hirafu Village, but it was well worth making the trip to Annupuri for the exquisite omakase. The soba is world famous, but what surprised us was the other courses were great too! Comforting spread of Japanese cuisine....More
