For any vegetarians or vegans, Hatoguruma is a hidden gem! They offer set dinners for ¥2000 per person, and the food is all vegetarian (or vegan on request). The incredibly welcoming local family make all their meals from local produce! However, reservations do need to be made one day prior. The family speak little English so if you need help making a reservation please ask any of our Japanese speaking staff.
It can be difficult to find food that caters to vegetarians, vegans, and people with dietary needs in general in Japan. However, awareness has increased significantly even in the small town of Nozawa Onsen, and you’ll be happy to hear that there are now plenty of options to cater for your dietary needs. Check out our blog on eating out with dietary needs in Nozawa Onsen here.
