Five of the Best Sushi Joints
Sushi in Niseko doesn't come any better than Hanayoshi. The selection of fresh sashimi and sushi is a prime example of authentic, fresh Hokkaido ingredients and preparation at its best. The wide range of nigiri and norimaki is sure to offer something to suit everyone's tastes – from the chicken and avocado for the conservative, to the raw meat and fish for the hardcore. And to cap it all off, Hanayoshi is very fairly priced. Definitely worth the trip out to Niseko Town!
