Eat & Drink-Restaurant

Originally built as a safety hut for those lost on the mountain in 1965, Boyoso is located in the log cabin halfway up the hill directly under the Hirafu gondola. Current owners Toshimi and Hiroko Funaba have operated this restaurant since 1986. Boyoso operates on a first-come, first-serve basis and the long queue during the lunchtime rush of hungry skiers and snowboarders speaks to the popularity of the place and the hearty and filling food they serve. Enjoy generous portions of the crowd-favourite pork katsu curry or try the speciality Ikura-Don (salmon roe over rice), Kani-Don (crab over rice) and be sure to order their tasty dumplings, too. They also serve other ski hill favourites such as delicious tempura, soba, udon, donburi, and ramen, as well as complimentary Japanese tea. Hungry guests line up at the door and queue towards the front, where they are greeted with a signboard listing menu options. Seating and service are all done on a self-serve basis, and because Boyoso fills up quickly, large groups may not be able to seat themselves at an entire table. Be sure to bring cash with you as Boyoso is cash-only. The interior of Boyoso is warm, albeit a bit cramped because of all the guests and the racks where one can hang their jackets and helmets. Expect to share a table with other diners. You can access Boyoso via the Grand Hirafu’s Holiday Pair chairlift and then a short traverse across to the restaurant. (Photos from Boyoso website)
