Get ready for Hokkaido’s ski season!

Set amongst the beautiful Tomamu landscape, Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU is one of the largest ski resorts in Hokkaido, Japan.

During the winter, temperatures in Tomamu can reach minus 30 degrees Celsius, producing some of the best dry powder snow in the country. Located on the lower east side of the Hokkaido Powder Belt, Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU features two ski-in ski-out hotels with English-speaking staff, and a ski-in ski-out shopping precinct. It is a convenient hub to access a variety of slopes, from easy green to challenging black runs.

The Tomamu Snow Park and Resort has a wide range of après-ski activities including snow buggy and snowmobile tours, banana boat and snow rafting, family snow picnics and Baumkuchen making. There is also an Ice Village where guests can enjoy a casual drink at the ice bar or indulge in Hokkaido cheese fondue.

With consistent temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius or higher, summer never ends at Mina-Mina Beach, Japan’s largest indoor wave pool. Opposite the pool is an open-air bath facing the coniferous forest for guests that simply want to relax or soothe a tired body after an adventurous day outdoors.

Hoshino Resorts CEO, Yoshiharu Hoshino says “It can be a challenge for people that love skiing or snowboarding to include friends or family in a ski trip that have little to no interest in snow sports. Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU provides easy access to high-quality powder runs while others can explore the beautiful surroundings in other exciting ways.

“Our facilities and activities allow friends and family to have a shared experience of exploring the Tomamu landscape, whether it’s carving up powder through the diverse terrain or enjoying a picnic in the snow by the lake,” adds Hoshino.
