Gentem Cafe Niseko adjoining the Gentemstick Showroom in Kabayama serves authentic Asian cuisine. Once you enter the cafe, you might wonder if you are in the right place as it looks like an antique shop selling Japanese traditional items, but the wine and shochu bottles on the back shelves will let you know you’re in the right place. After a day of skiing/snowboarding or shopping for your new snowboard at the showroom next door, unique Asian meals are waiting for you. Meals are cooked with Hokkaido ingredients, and some of them are name brand products such as Nanatsuboshi rice product of Niseko. They specialise in salads and seafood and you will feel like you’re having a traditional Japanese home dinner. It is a vegetarian-friendly premise and you will learn about real Japanese culture, perhaps more so than any other restaurant in Niseko. Sadly, the 2013/14 winter season will be the last season for the Gentem Cafe of Niseko as it is closing next year. Gentem Cafe is located in Kabayama, a few minutes drive southwest from the main intersection in Hirafu Village.
