Shoya Maruhachi Reviews

Shoya Maruhachi Google Average Rating



Reservation is recommended. Dining in a traditional Japanese house is a very special experience. The food is fantastic and service is ambience.


A wonderful place for foreign visitors. Great Japanese food and comfortable space. The restaurant is relatively sizable in Hakuba, which means you have higher chance to book a table. The building is an old Japanese house which gives the guests a glimpse into the structure of an old Japanese house. A nice dining experience.
