Where is Tomamu Ski Resort?

Tomamu is situated about 150 km to the east of Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan.

The small town of Naka-tomamu sits just near the Tomamu train station, which only consists of several houses, a handful of pensions, and a hotel yet no shops. The nearest decent sized town, Shintoku, is a 20 minute (40km) train ride away.

Getting Around Tomamu

Getting around between the accommodation and restaurants areas is very easy. The entire village is linked together by a very efficient and regular shuttle bus service that stops at the hotels, resort centre and spa centre every 15 minutes.

It's easy to walk between the Tower Hotel and Risonare Hotel and their associated restaurants via the Sky Walk. This is an indoor passageway that passes through the forest. It might be indoors but it's not warm, so rug up!
