Without a doubt, Gyu+ (the bar with the mini fridge door as its entrance) is the coolest bar in town. After Mt Yotei and the Alpen thermometer, it would have to be the most photographed landmark in Niseko. So you know the hamburger joint its creator has created in Kutchan town is also going to carry a crate load of cool. Hisashi Watanabe opened Pelican Burger in July, after spending two years designing and building the interior. While Pelican’s front door is human sized, Watanabe-san’s touch is evident from the front façade to the back walls. After taking in the surrounds you should order one of their creative burgers. Pelcian Burger is opposite the 7-Eleven.
