Otherworldly dining in the heart of Japan’s snow country

Savor local delicacies in an epic snowscape of huts and glowing lanterns

A charming destination nestled in the mountains of scenic Nagano prefecture, the city of Iiyama is home to Restaurant Kamakura Village, a unique dining destination that comes alive from the end of January to the end of February each year.

Come in from the cold to a cozy snow hut and warm mind and body over a bowl of noroshi-nabe, a piping hotpot specialty made from Nagano miso and locally grown vegetables.
Farm stayovers are also available nearby, as well as skiing, snowboarding and sledding for the more outdoor types.

Iiyama is truly a winter wonderland. Nagano is about 1.5 hours away from Tokyo by bullet train.
