“Yummy but the price might be quite expensive ”
Review of Genpei

Reviewed 1 August 2017 via mobile

We stayed in Kawayuonsen & had dinner here, this was an small authentic Japanese restaurant. An old couple running this restaurant, the husband cooking, the wife serve the foods, & the daughter help to take order & serve also. The daughter was friendly & can speak English.

We order 3 different kinds of yakitori - chicken, pork belly & shashimo, & also grilled squid, grilled salted & dried fish, potato croquettes. Yakitori pork belly especially yummy; yakitori chicken normal; shashimo serve in male & female, both the fish texture was very different & taste good; grilled squid very normal; we don't like grilled salted & dried fish, it isnt to our liking; potato croquettes yummy too!

There was three kinds of seating - table, bar counter, & Japanese floor seating. The environment was nice for dinner after a whole day sightseeing. To us, the price a bit on high side, may be there was not much competitor or many restaurant near by close early haha!

I will recommended this restaurant if you are looking for an authentic restaurant to try local foods.

Thanks for the vote if you found this helpful :D

I would not be surprised finding a similar IZAKAYA (Japanese taverns) in Tokyo, however finding such a cozy, friendly, and delicious IZAKAYA in a small rural ONSEN (hot spring) town in Eastern Hokkaido on a snowy winter evening when the outside temperature was below -20c was a big surprise. What's more, the waitress (probably a daughter of the shop owner) spoke English reasonably well, and she was very helpful too. Although no English menu, no problem for international travelers.

Staff at our hotel front desk recommended us to go to this restaurant, and we were not disappointed. We even went back there the following night. A lot of choices (no menu in English, but the waitress could translate most of it), excellent meals, really nice atmosphere with jazz playing all along: it makes you feel like you are in a Japanese new wave movie (with people smoking, but we never smelled anything). Interior decoration is all made of dark wood.

We arrived in this place and there was no menu in English, but no problem, the waitress was so nice and helped us a lot. We took the speciality, some potatoes fried, which are really good. Plus mushrooms and yakitori, everything was excellent. The sake also, that was suggested to us by the waitress. The place is like a cosy bar, everything made in an old wood and this gives a very nice atmosphere. The music is jazzy and of very good quality (which is very hard to find in Hokkaido...) Was like being in heaven for the night.
