Hatano Iiyama

We run a tour to Hatano and it is a must for every guest who really cares about experiencing the best of Japanese cuisine. It is a truly special culinary experience.  Hatano's mission is to offer healthy experiences, utilizing the abundant and nutritious ingredients from the surrounding mountainous region.

"In appreciation of our guests who have journeyed far, we proudly use ingredients from Shinshu. For our local visitors, we present seasonally sourced and traditional foods that epitomize the adage, You are what you eat."

With the rising interest in wild game cuisine in Iiyama, the executive chef at Hatano not only cooks but also forages for and prepares the produce. Creating Kaiseki (traditional Japanese degustation) cuisine with the freshest ingredients and those that best suit the season has transformed this restaurants into one of the best in the entire region.
