Great menu and delicious noodles. The scallops were amazing. View of Mt. Yotei is awesome too. Breakfast can be busy.

Dear BearDays,

Thank you for taking the time to review us.

We aim to source Hokkaido produce for as many of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it sounds like we had the pleasure of serving you for all three.

Breakfast can be busy before the ski lifts open at 8:30 but with over 180 seats, there is rarely a wait for a table.

I have passed your kind comments on to our kitchen team and look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Niseko.

Kind regards,

Jordan Redwood

We have been to the Kumo about a dozen times so far this trip - mainly lunches on the hill. What a find!!!
Coffee (500yen) is the best on the hill - tastes like double shots - not the anemic stuff served elsewhere. And the chocolate pudding (1000yen) is to die for. Prices for mains (around 1700 yen) are very reasonable. The most popular lunch dishes in our group are the chicken nanban and the tofu dish (which even I think tastes good and normally I don't like tofu). The other dishes on the menu have also not disappointed. The staff (Otabek,Trixie and colleagues) are friendly, helpful and know their menu. There is a good relaxed vibe amongst the staff. If you are on the hill there is a back entrance next to King Pair Lift 1. Leave your skis and boards on the racks, brush of the snow. Thru the door, into the lift, down one floor, walk through the ski concierge, turn left, keep walking past the shop, past the cafe, past reception and into the restaurant.

Dear RayPeeVee,

We appreciate you coming back to Kumo so often, and taking the time to review us.

I am glad you enjoyed your time with us so much and found our ski-in ski-out location convenient.

You are correct about our coffee, we use a double espresso shot as standard, I am glad you could notice the difference.

I will pass your kind feedback on to Otabek, Trixie and all the team.

We are all looking forward to serving you again on your next trip to Niseko.

Kind regards,

Jordan Redwood

We are staying at the hotel and have visited the restaurant twice now. Both were excellent meals and we will almost certainly be back at least once more before the end of the holiday.

Our servers were Jocasta on the first night, and then Alex tonight. Both were lovely people and happy to answer questions about the menu and make recommendations. We had two completely different meals (ok, I confess we had chocolate dessert both nights...) and both were amazing.

Keep up the good work and enjoy the season both of you! And say thanks to the guys in the kitchen too... your food is awesome!

Dear Trisha,

Thank you very much for your kind review. I have happily passed on your commendations to Jocasta, Alex and the kitchen team. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal and the service during your time dining with us (the chocolate pudding is definitely worth having a few nights in a row).

I look forward to having you dine with us again next time you stay with us at Skye Niseko.

Kind regards,

Jordan Redwood

Ski into Skye Niseko and had lunch at Kumo.
With all these hotels with restaurants down slopes, plenty of choices and place to eat.
This is full service and nice view to the Ace Family lift.
Service is good. I had pork rice bowl - yummy.
Has a good selection of beer, wine and cocktails. Menu for lunch is very good.
Will need to come back again.

Dear Patrick,

Thank you very much for your review. I'm glad to hear that our ski-in and ski-out accessibility made us the perfect spot to enjoy a meal with a view of the slopes.

I'm looking forward to having you dine with us again next time you're out on the mountain.
