Savour the love at Picnic restaurant, Niseko

Picnic is perhaps one of the best kept secrets in Niseko. Picnic is located in the midst of a sprawling, well-tended garden, filled with beautiful flowers and herbs on Route 66 on the way to Makkari. A decagonal-shaped cottage with a double-storey entrance way that connects the garden into a immaculate, well-lit, homely space. Whether you are seated in a private dining room upstairs or at a communal table at the lower level – you will be able to savour a gourmet 8-course entreé with a salmon pate or Philly steak sandwich in a basket with a spectacular view of the landscape beyond. At the entrance, there are two pairs of scissors and some ribbon ties for you to take home some flowers and herbs as mementoes of your meal at Picnic. 

There's an overwhelming feeling of love and joviality at this place – everything is super fresh, home-made and delicious. If the idea of a picnic is manifested into space, this could probably be it.
