Our open-air bath provides amazing views of the Hachimantai mountain range, helping to alleviate tiredness from an active day.The restaurant features windows on one side and a high-vaulted triangular roof. At the center of this spacious area, there is an open kitchen featuring a splendid stone oven. This is a perfect setting for enjoying dinner at the end of an active day, where you can relax and sample the delicious flavors of a variety of produce from Hachimantai.

The Food
Enjoy the flavors cultivated in the great Hachimantai climate,all served at their very best. The main dishes at dinner time include locally-produced meat and fish cooked in a stone oven, such as the Tochuu Tea Pork. Thanks to its exposure to far infrared light, the outside of the pork features a crunchy texture, while the inside remains moist and juicy, maximizing its original flavor. At this restaurant, you can enjoy the delicious flavors of Hachimantai to your heart’s content.

In addition to the main dishes, you can also enjoy a buffet offering a wide range of local dishes, such as salads made with fresh vegetables, tempura of mountain vegetables, hittsumi hot pots, kiritanpo rice sticks, and more. Enjoy as many dishes as you like from the buffet, including a range of starters while you wait for the main dishes, some rice or noodle dishes to finish off the meal, as well as some delicious desserts.

Enjoy an invigorating breakfast buffet in a bright dining room that lets the sunshine come in through its large windows. The buffet offers a wide variety of dishes, both in Japanese and western styles, with many healthy options featuring plenty of fruit and vegetables.

Wide selection of high-quality sake from Iwate. Washinoo is a sake brewery located in Hachimantai, that was founded in 1829. Wanting to create sakes that help you to unwind after a long day, the brewers' line-up is focused around sweet offerings that help to achieve this aim, soaking into your weary self as the perfect reward. Baeren Brewery, producing craft beers in Morioka city. The beer brewed on this site that was founded 100 years ago is authentic, handmade beer that respects the traditional European style of beer. It has a luxurious depth of flavor and linger aftertaste, yet is easily quaffable enough to enjoy every day. Another popular product is the Hachimantai wine, a dry, medium-bodied wine created from a blend of specially selected crimson glory grapes which tempers the bitterness of these grapes, resulting in a refined, balanced flavor with soft tannins. We offer a wide variety of local alcoholic drinks.

Thanks for recommending Hachimantai Mountain Hotel and Spa.

The hotel service, accommodation and meals were excellent. The nearby ski runs, Panorama (mostly for beginners) and Shimokura (more advanced) were easily accessed. Panorama is next door to the hotel and Shimokura is only a short bus trip away.  We found Shimakoura, which has more challenging runs and 3 official tree courses the preferred option.

As with a lot of Japanese resorts, the ski runs are seldom crowded and the hotel was quiet of an evening. After several days of intense skiing we were quite content to take it easy and relax after recovering in the Onsen.

We look forward to booking with you again next year!

The mountains
On the left is Hachimantai Panorama & on the right is Hachimantai Shimokura. Hachimantai Panorama is perfectly suited to beginners & intermediate levels while Shimokura is suited more to the advanced powder hunter.
Two of the runs at the top area are of Hachimantai Shimokura are non-groomed. The black run on the left called Diamond Course is actually 37 degrees! Imagine the morning after the dump!
