Hokkaido 109 – The Crab Shack @ Niseko Village

The Crab Shack at Niseko Village is the handful of restaurants at the Village next to the Hilton Niseko Village. It was a relatively short few minutes ride from the Green Leaf Niseko Village where we stayed and the shuttle bus was extremely reliable and on time (it’s Japan we wouldn’t expect any less). We had asked our hotel to make the dinner reservation before we arrived at Niseko but The Village turned out to be quite empty, unlike HIrafu where everywhere were full. Still we had a good dinner at The Crab Shack with their signature steamed kaizoku-yaki style seafood hot pot with king crab legs (¥10,000 for 2 person), and konro grilled style Japanese Boarfish for ¥1,500 and the mussels with garlic and wine for ¥1,500. Everything turned out to be very fresh and delicious, the broth of the seafood hot pot was flavourful perfect for the snowy weather.  If you’re looking for for a place for Hokkiado crab in Niseko, this restaurant is good choice.
Do you know that King crab which is native to the Sea of Japan, has eight legs including claws, and the right claw is quite bigger than the left one? 😉
