Madarao Kogen tends to be a lot quieter in the eating and drinking department than it’s near neighbours Myoko Kogen and Nozawa Onsen. Nonetheless after a day of getting in amongst the Madapow there are still quite a few small Madarao restaurants and bars in Madarao Kogen to relax with friends and meet the locals. If not stated no English menu is available so, unless you just want to point, don’t forget your Japanese phrasebook!

Nori-Ra is a small Japanese style bar with traditional Japanese food that is to die for. The owner is a killer snowboarder and you can find him most days lapping the park. Perfect to unwind after a day in the pow or a great place to get a bit wild if you feel like kicking on! See reviews
At Madarao Kogen Hotel the main restaurant is Piedmonte, serving up mountains of food in the form of a family friendly buffet. The quality of the buffet is very good, and for breakfast and dinner they serve up a huge range of western and Japanese food. All the food is labelled with Japanese and English signs, which can be handy when you’re staring at very unfamiliar food.
The Furusato Restaurant is more formal and offers gorgeous views across the night skiing area. The Japanese food is exquisite, and go here hungry because the kaiseki style courses just keep appearing. See reviews
Coffee Shop Inaka is a small local shokudo located just near Jazzy. See reviews

It’s worth heading down the hill into Iiyama City at least one night during your stay. There’s a night bus that heads into town at 4pm so you can visit one of various restaurants around the train station. Ask your Madarao accommodation for more details or see if they can help you arrange a sushi train visit and/or shopping tour.
