Nabejaya Korin

The luxury taste of a high-end Niigata “ryotei” restaurant, in a casual setting.

Japanese cuisine

Nabejaya is a historic “ryotei”, authentic Japanese-style luxury restaurant, famous enough to earn a street named after it. Its sister brand, Nabejaya Korin, sits on the building’s corner and is known for its especially wallet-friendly pricing.

Here you’ll find a full-course meal of rich and colorful Japanese fare that celebrates the best of local sea and mountain delights across the four seasons. Only available by reservation, this coveted spot offers a dining experience and flavor that still stands up to the original Nabejaya brand. It’s no surprise to know that this spot has earned two Michelin stars in the Michelin Guide Niigata 2020.

Inside, guests are greeted with a cozy-chic interior with modern Japanese flair. The layout is arranged to favor the counter-seats, with a close-up view of your food being prepared while you wait. Additionally, guests can choose from a wide variety of seating including private rooms and table seating with views of the enclosed garden.
