Stay a while and explore Hokkaido from Hoshino Resorts Tomamu

G’Day Japan! exclusive deal, saving up to 80%! Limited time only!

A great snow holiday area in its own right, Tomamu is a convenient base for visiting Furano, Sahoro and Kamui, and enjoying the best of the Central Hokkaido region. This area is famous for even drier, finer powder snow than Niseko, thanks to its lower inland humidity, and is home to the tallest peaks of 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.

Getting to Tomamu is quite simple, it’s a 95 minute plane ride from Tokyo on a domestic service. You have a choice of two airports in Hokkaido to fly in, either New Chitose Airport or Obihiro Airport. From either airports you can hop on to a train to Tomamu station, which will take about an hour.

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, allage 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 Furano, Sahoro 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.

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!
