Niseko Gourmet’s traditional Japanese course menu is presented by black tea master, culinary instructor and former recipe columnist Mikako Murai.
Her menu has been thoughtfully planned with balance using the Buddhist philosophy of five elements of colour, cooking methods and taste.
Choose one dish from each starter, rice, meat, fish course and dessert. Please choose only one of each course per group reservation.
