Now in retirement, Fattys Bar was one of the non-stop party spots in the Hirafu village. A renovated truck with a bar in the back of it, Fattys was a landmark as well as being one of the unique bars in Niseko. Fattys Bar t-shirts were very popular. "Enjoy cheap beer and good music" was Fattys theme.
