This was a hidden gem in Hirafu. Hadn’t heard about it prior to tripadvisor. We visited mid week and we were the only patrons, but treated exceptionally well. The sushi master was very friendly and explained all the lunch options. We thought it was excellent...value, prepared with good attention to detail. Fresh ingredients, we will come back for the crab dish which takes 30mins to prepare. There was also a nice looking uni dish, but the uni was arriving 2 hours later from the fish wholesaler, so we are confident that the ingredients are very nice. Great view and low key vibe. Will be back.More

At the time of this writing the reviews on TA are all 5 star so you can’t improve on that as far as stars go but perhaps a bit more context will help those still on the fence. First, the value proposition is fantastic. For...comparison, at another well-regarded local restaurant, we paid 4000 yen (pre tax and service fees!) for two smallish pieces of Hokkaido venison loin in a relatively tasteless “Ainu“ sauce with some pickled veggie sides. At Kato you get a full course menu with sushi, tempura, and a variety of additional courses including a stellar eel-in-broth dish for 5000 total! Oh, yeah, they also threw in 2 fresh crab courses including a rare snow crab leg shabu shabu. Same price. We felt guilty paying the absurdly low (for this level of food) bill. But the real reason to come here is the passion with which the staff and chef approach their art. Everything they do comes from a place of pride in their work. We got the feeling that everything was carefully chosen for a reason, from the sake to the homemade “fluffy” matcha salt. Having lived in Dijon, France for 10 years, I also had a fascinating conversation with the chef about the differences between the Japanese dashi and French bouquet garni traditions. Highly recommended.More

It is a wonderful restaurant of a crab specialty store. Amazing service that feels Japan. I want to visit with my family again. Enjoy a wide selection of wines, such as fresh sushi, tempura, and so on with your meal. Not only in the winter...ski season, but also in the refreshing summer of Niseko, it will be fun. 蟹専門店の素晴らしい飲食店です。日本を感じるサービスがアメージング。また家族と訪問したいです。新鮮なお寿司、天ぷら、などお食事と一緒にソムリエが選ぶ豊富なワインも楽しみです。冬のスキーシーズンだけではなく、夏の爽やかなニセコでの滞在もたのしくなりそうです。More

We had the most memorable authentic sushi omakase with friends. The restaurant is owned by a major seafood distributor so the quality top notch! The chef was brillant and made our visit extra special and fun! The location is well located but behind a secret...door. They have a superb whiskey bar and is a great place for an event or dinner with a large group of friends. Highly recommended!More

Sushi Kato is a terrific brand new sushi restaurant in Hirafu. The bar is moody and stocked with premium whisky and sake. The ‘tunnel’ from there through to the restaurant is exciting and reveals stylish interior decor in a restaurant set around the chefs counter....We had the Ume set which featured incredible sashimi, wagyu, tempura and sushi. As good as it currently gets in niseko.More

I had the opportunity to go and have dinner in this amazing place. From the ambiance to the food and the service, everything was carefully taken care of. Our diner was delicious and we had the chance to observe the chef work. And they also...open in summer something to take into consideration in Niseko since there are no many options available in the green season. Overall a place I would love to return to!!!More

Sushi Kato offered seemless and unobtrusive service, and friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable chef and food which was absolutely incredible. Felt like being in real Japan and the produce was fresh and the highest quality. Snowcrab tempura and wagyu beef were highlights, along with the freshest...sushi and sashimi. Highly recommended and can't wait to go back!More
