Located on the way to Kita-Yatsugatake Ropeway, inside the "Tateshina Village" holiday home area, Switchback is an Italian restaurant specializing in wood oven cuisine.
Some of the most popular items on the menu are the indulging oven-baked pizzas made with plenty of locally grown ingredients, the simple but flavorful roast vegetables, and the T-bone Tateshina beef steaks.
While the vegetables tend to be the protagonists at this restaurant, meat dishes and desserts are just as delicious.
The luminous interiors are decorated with tasteful furniture and trekking goods. Sunlight floods the restaurant through the big windows and, in summer, you can dine out on the terrace.
Switchback is the perfect place to enjoy the peaceful mountain environment while drinking some fine wine or a cold beer.
