To enjoy the best of the Central Hokkaido region, finding a good home base is vital. The Hoshino Resorts Group now provides not only one but TWO hotels that are perfect candidates to be your home away from home; the Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU and the OMO7 Hotel in Asahikawa. Both of these Hoshino Resorts accommodations are fully equipped to accommodate adventurers of all kinds; from skiers, snowboarders, to those who just looking to discover more of Japan in Hokkaido.  

Tomamu can go down to -30ºC on a cold day, but this extremely cold climate is the secret of Tomamu’s attraction. The secret is that the cold climate provides the perfect environment for snow to remain in great shape for days on end, not to mention the super dry powder that falls in this area. Weaving through the foresty Mt. Tomamu feeling the powder snow beneath, is a thrilling ride you can’t resist. 
A little further up north from Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU is the city of Asahikawa. The attraction of Asahikawa is the friendly yet relaxed local atmosphere, the convenient access to nearby ski resorts and towns, and of course, the Asahiyama Zoo! Both hotels are located conveniently for visiting such areas including Biei, FuranoSahoro and Kamui.

Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU is located in Hokkaido within easy reach of three airports. It is the closest full-range resort to the New Chitose Airport, meaning a relaxing resort vacation begins the second guests step off the plane. Right in the middle of Hokkaido, the resort is in the heart of the boundless nature the island has to offer. 

Fly straight in on a domestic flight to New Chitose Airport or to Obihiro Airport from Tokyo’s Haneda airport and straight onto the famous powder on the same day. Once arrived at Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU, guests have access to the superb Central Hokkaido highlights such as diamond dust and rime ice, and 29 great courses, this innovative resort also features a magnificent Ice Village as part of its winter activity and entertainment program. Direct buses are available from Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU to FuranoSahoro and Asahikawa, offering even more slope variety, night life and other attractions. 

The Icy Wonders of Winter

The famous Hokkaido powder snow is certainly no secret. The secret is a very kind weather system that pushes extremely cold air across the Sea of Japan from Siberia, to the slopes of Japan’s northern nature island, meaning that places like Tomamu enjoy at least one hundred days of snowfall per season. Offering the most reliable ski season in the world, filled with fluffy powder bliss, the skiing to be had at Tomamu is reason enough alone to visit. 

Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU is home to an expanded total of 29 different courses to suit all levels over a lengthy 21.3 kilometres. Allowing the resort to offer a matchless experience when compared to the rest of the powder crowd, however, is its inventive and original entertainment and attractions, for all ages. During the winter months, the allure of the Muhyo Terrace, or “Terrace of Frost Tree”, is one point of difference. 

Another is the magic of Ice Village, a wonderland for kids and adults. After the sun has set, musical instruments sculpted from ice provide the backdrop for ice skating, the slide at the Snow Park, and of course, the Ice Bar and Ice Café. Ice Village also hosts an array of different events throughout the winter calendar, so be sure to check the schedule. Santa’s arrival at Christmas time and the Sweats Carnival of New Year’s are particular highlights! 

In addition to slopes which cater for kids big and small and of all levels of ability, there’s the snow mobile and many other snow-related activities available to keep everyone occupied and thoroughly entertained. The bonus is that there is also a free shuttle bus to get from one place to another within the area. 

Two hours north of Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU is OMO7 ASAHIKAWA. It’s location is perfect for those wanting to explore deep snow ski areas such as AsahidakeKurodake, Kamui, FuranoSahoro, and Tokachidake. If you are a serious skier and powder hound, you don’t want to miss the opportunity to explore these areas. In the evening, the snowy city of Asahikawa becomes a winter wonderland where you roam around to find delicious local foods and exciting bars.

Hotalu Street


Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU continues to produce facilities and activities that are highly unique, and last snow season they opened Hotalu Street. It’s a ski-in-and-out shopping village, where guests can ski or snowboard straight in to enjoy some shopping, eating and drinking from the slopes or via a corridor connected to the hotel.

Kirin-no-yu


No snow holiday in Japan is complete without a nice soak in the tub après ski and Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU does not disappoint in this either. Complete with provided amenities as well as a sauna, this open-air bath facing the rich forests of TOMAMU has everything you need to relax and recharge after exploring the resort and snowy Hokkaido.

Enjoy the waves at Mina-Mina Beach


Even during the winter season guests can head to the beach without having to leave the resort. In the native Hokkaido Ainu language, “mina” means “smile” and Mina-Mina Beach is an enclosed area purposely designed to keep everyone in the family happy whether they’re staying at the resort for its many activities or if it is relaxation that they seek. The Beach is open during the day but is perhaps best enjoyed after the sun has set, as the soft lights of the night reflect gently off the water.

Rental Equipment to Play in Nature


Of course, during the winter months, making sure you have the right gear is integral to enjoyment and making the most of a stay in one of the planet’s best powder snow playgrounds. Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU’s Rental Corner’s have absolutely everything skiers and boarders may need at reasonable prices, meaning getting up on the mountain is as easy and convenient as it could be!

CAT Tours  


The resort offers some exciting snow CAT tours! You can take a tour to simply experience what it’s like to drive over the powder, to go deeper into the mountains or go on an off-the-track tour to backcountry areas!
