Enjoy Hoshino Resort Tomamu while staying in a private, spacious funky apartment in the the resort.

There is a front desk so check-in and check-out is a breeze.

Discount coupons are available (not during peak seasons) for restaurants, pool & lift tickets from the front desk.

My unit is not in a hotel so you will have to make your own beds after checking in. There are house rules that need to be followed & only limited amenities are available in the room. Please read on to find out more.

The space

My apartment is excellent for couples and families. It has great forest views with space to stretch out and relax.

But please be mindful, the exposed stairs and loft area may require some caution especially for small children.

Clean linen & towels for each guest booked will be placed in the room prior to your arrival & will be replenished every 4th day of your stay. You must make your own bed after check-in as bed making service is not available.

To keep you cool in summer, the room has 2 tower fans, but No Air conditioning. In winter, there is central heating and there are 2 portable heaters to keep you warm.

There is No WiFi in the apartment but it can be accessed free at various hotspots throughout the resort. The closest is about a 2 minute walk from the apartment at reception.

My apartment has a large fridge, microwave, oven toaster, rice cooker and an IH cooker, so you can eat in if you like.

Guest access

As a guest, you have full access to all that the resort offers. Information is available at the front desk and on the Hoshino Resort Tomamu website.

In summer, unkai (sea of clouds) viewing from the summit café is a must. You can also experience laying in a hammock just below the summit that is sometimes above the clouds.

In winter, the powder snow is fantastic! Locally it is called Champaign powder as it is arguably the best powder snow in Hokkaido!

There are over a dozen different restaurants to choose from in the resort including 2 large buffet restaurants.

Interaction with guests

In winter we will be available in person from mid January through to mid March. At any other time we are contactable via email.

Other things to note

There is free parking available but not in front of the building, that is only for pick-up and drop-off. The designated car-parks are about a 5 minute walk away so be prepared to walk to and from your car.

Free shuttle buses are available to take you anywhere within the resort and there is also a free shuttle service to JR Tomamu station.

While my room has been renovated, the building itself is old and in need of a little repair.

Stephen's place was clean and convenient, there is a free shuttle bus that can bring you to all the areas within the resort. However, We were surprised that we need to make our own bed, clean linens were placed on the mattress. We stayed during mid July, it was quite hot during our stay. There is no A/C in the apartment, and there is only a tiny small window that you can open. Ventilation wasn't too well.There are two small fans that you can use, but we still feel relatively hot during our stay. The building(Village Alpha)was abit old, we saw water dripping from ceiling on the first floor and there is no A/C in the entire building, it gets really hot and stuffy that we need to stay outside to wait for the shuttle bus. The amount that we ended up paying (included the cleaning and the service fee) wasn't too much less compare to staying in the Tower,which has a/c ,hotel service and free entrance fee to some facilities like the Mina Mina Beach and free breakfast (2200 yen per person) Also,the descriptions said there will be discount coupon that can be used on the resort's facilities, but the staff told us there is no discount coupon provided. I would recommend to stay during winter time because it can be hot during summer time as there is no a/c. Stephen was responsive and helpful during our stay.

This resort is awesome with plenty of activities for everyone. The apartment was nice and clean . The unit location is good and everything is in walking distance. All the basics are provided but be sure to bring the the extras that you like because there are no stores or grocery shopping in the area. Bring groceries or be prepared to spend a good amount on eating out as it is a resort with resort pricing.

Response from Stephen:
Hi Terry, Thank you for your feedback. We have noted your comments and have already addressed the issues you have raised. We did advise you very early on in the booking process that the room had an exposed staircase and loft area. We have updated the description to make it even more clear. As our apartment is not in a hotel and we are not on site, we have made special mention of what to expect when checking in. This information is contained in the room information as well. Unfortunately, the procedure can not be changed and everyone has to make their own beds. This was not an oversight or omission. However, we have taken your feedback into consideration and made specific mention on the website so there will be no further misunderstanding as to what to expect when checking in. In regard to the discount coupons, we were only advised that the resort (Hoshino) is not providing them during peak season (1 July - 31 August) a few days ago so we must apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Thank you once again for your honest feedback. Stephen

경치가 좋고 깨끗합니다. 와이파이나 편의점이 없으니 미리 준비해 간다면 아주 좋은 숙소인 것 같습니다.
