Restaurants and Nightlife

Rusutsu is more relaxed than the more frequented Niseko. The resort has two main hotel complexes, which offer most of the off-trail entertainment, accommodation, shopping, and food. These are the Rusutsu Resort Hotel and The Rusutsu Tower Hotel. The best food can be found at the hotels’ restaurants such as the German Oktoberfest, which serves great Japanese and western style buffet dinners and breakfast.

Further away on the Strip are independently run restaurants and bars. They include the Restaurant East village, Rodeo Drive, Lamp House, and a few izakaya, or Japanese style bars. The Cricket Bar is the main draw, and also serves pizzas.
