Where is Tomamu Japan?

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

The small village of Naka-tomamu sits just near the Tomamu train station, which only consists of several houses, a handful of pensions, and a hotel. The nearest decent sized town, Shintoku, is a 20 minute (40km) train ride away.

Getting Around Tomamu

Getting around between the Tomamu hotels 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 center 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!

If you’re staying at Pension Ing down the road from the resort, the owner will drive you to and from the resort during the day if you don’t have your own wheels.
