Great restaurant although quite small with an intimate feel. The food is cheap and they have beer on tap which is nice. Just make sure you book if you're coming in the snow season! The fried rice is delicious

This place is a must go if you are a ramen or katsu fan. Located near the Hakuba train station Emu offers the best value and best tasting Ramen and Katsu's in town.Large servings are standard and the prices are extremely good value.
