TOMAMU: Japan's winter wonderland is here: The large open central Hokkaido turns to Ice Village with varieties of beautiful icy experiences from ice hotel to ice bar.
Within a couple of hour driving from Hokkaido's capital Sapporo, Tomamu Alpha Resort takes advantage of serene lakes and open spaces, featuring unique relaxation to icy experience in winter, and from adventure programs and dynamic sports activities to breathtaking dining experience. The winter arctic weather over Hokkaido creates perfect icy field for the ice playground for family travelers and more: Ice Village, a hotel room built with crystal ice bricks, Snow Garden Café with bonfires and s'more tables, Ice Bar inspired by Scandinavian way to get warm with alcohol, Ice Chapel for mystique yet elegant wedding ceremonies, and Atelier of Ice for ice sculpture workshops. These all transform to different experience in summer: The Chapel becomes Water Chapel designed by Tadao Ando with breathtaking views of green forests and water behind the panoramic glass wall, the mystique branch looking over "the cloud sea" which appears in the right weather and temperature, and golf courses facilitate children to adults of any level. Although Tomamu is rather inland, the Wave Pool housed in the glass dome is unforgettable summer family experience.
