A respite in the splendid nature around Hokkaido

Our Hokkaido resort is located amongst the best skiing destinations in Japan. There is always something exciting to see or do, no matter the season. Take the time to explore and enjoy the natural beauty of Lake Toya or take a scenic gondola ride to the summit of West Mountain for Hokkaido's most stunning views. From there, head over to our observation deck and relax on the terrace. We receive over 14 meters of snow annually and this makes us a perfect destination for ski enthusiasts.
