Excellent food in Hakuba. Ensure you make a booking as it is only a small place. Service was not as friendly as we had become used to at other places in the area.

a drink per person is mandatory. ordered hot sake and was perfect for winter. food was good. sashimi and oysters were fresh, the usual items like karaage, tofu was good as well. nothing was particularly outstanding except the potato item which is artistically done and...yummy to boot. have to reserve usually and u have a time limit to stay in there i believe. prices on the higher side.More

Hotel recommended this place and they were right. We were lucky they managed to book us in as it is a small restaurant. The inside is so charming, and the food lived up to the expectations. Although the staff spoke limited English they were very...nice and made an effort to communicate with us.More

We'd had Izakaya Hie (pronounced "he-ay" or something like that) recommended by many and we loved it. The restaurant is lots of small private rooms and a few large tables in an open area, we sat in the open area. It has a good buzz...and the staff are lovely, but importantly the food was excellent. Try the mixed sushi plate and make sure to order some sake. You'll find Izakaya Hie to be casual, authentic and non pretentious. Make sure to book.More

Staff at our hotel referred us to Izakaya Hie. We were dropped off at the restaurant and found ourselves outside of a quaint traditional Japanese timber dwelling. If we didn’t know it was a restaurant we would have wandered past. Entering the establishment was like...stepping back in time. Weathered timber walls, waiters in traditional garb, cozy alcoves partitioned off from other guests by calico curtains and sunken eating tables - made this a must do location for a traditional Japanese dinner. Food was interesting and delicious. Without a reservation this place is difficult to get into.More

We went here based on hotel recommendations. Couldn't get in without a booking as it is always booked out. Hie is a classic japanese Izakaya. The food was absolutely amazing - yakitori sticks were great but then it just got better and better. The squid...tempura was to die for and was better than any tempura I have had before. The sashimi platter was amazing, as was the chicken karaage. But the pick really was the nigiri sushi. We watched the older gentleman make the sushi with care and expertise behind the bar. The result? Some of the most amazing sushi I have ever had (better than Tsukiji market in Tokyo in my opinion). The nigiri maguro (tuna) was simply beautiful and melted in your mouth. Great drinks selection, great staff. We spend about 5000 yen each including alcohol. We will definitely be back!More

We have been here many times over the years and always love it. A great cosy place, where the food and drink is always great. A wide variety of food to choose from, kids love it.

Fully booked most of the time during the season.. better book early to get a table. A very rustic traditional Izakaya in Echoland but well worth the visit. Food was good with good quality and not overpriced. Service excellent as always in Japan. Had a...great time. Really tasty skewers and the wagyu steak was really flavourful and tender. Have tried most in the ski areas of Happo and Echoland this one ups the ante.More

We had a great meal at Hie. We especially liked their tempura squid, chicken yakitori (including the one with leek), mackerel, baked camembert & their local cheese. Their smoked salmon salad was different and fresh. However, the serves are not big and we ordered a...fair bit to get enough to eat.More

We came here one night after a long day of skiing and we were immediately impressed. We got a Japanese style table that could fit 6 people. The service was prompt and if you ever need anything click the buzzer. The food was delicious, when...we needed a taxi they ordered us one. Overall this is a great place to have a amazing dinner!More
