Appreciate ice fog and snowy mountains Enjoy the spectacular winter scenery of Hokkaido at “Hoshino Resort Tomamu”


At Hoshino Resort Tomamu, one of the largest stay-type snow resorts in Hokkaido, we will open the “Rime Terrace” during the period when you can enjoy the spectacular view of ice fog and snowy mountains. Drinks and lights will be served at the cafe.

What is Unkai Terrace?

The Rime Terrace is located at an altitude of 1,088 meters on Mt. Tomamu, and is a terrace where you can enjoy the spectacular view created by the rime that adheres to the trees. In the night rime illumination that started in 2017, the white rime trees that emerge under the light give a fantastic view that is different from the daytime.

Enjoy the spectacular view of the snowy mountains with rime from the renewed observation deck

The blue sky on a clear and sunny day and the pure white snowy mountains with hoarfrost are a spectacular view unique to cold regions. The observation deck, which was renewed on August 4, 2021, has a structure that protrudes into the snowy mountains, so you can see the hoarfrost up close.

In the morning when the temperature is low, you can see glittering diamond dust, and you can enjoy the spectacular view of the rime even more. The probability of rime on this terrace is about 70% (* 1), and you can appreciate it with a high probability throughout the season.

Illuminated hoarfrost at night

For a limited time, the trees around the observation spot “Cloud Bar”, which is the image of an observation deck and bar counter, will be lit up. The sight of the hoarfrost lit by the light and the entire white trees emerging is a spectacular view that can only be seen at night.

Uchina Stay Report vol.11: “Time slip in the Sanzan period ~ Gosamaru’s castle and pine trees ~”

It’s been almost a year since I moved to Okinawa. It reminds me of the wind that was blowing a year ago and the cold air that is heading for winter.

“Can we do it in Okinawa?”

“What is the difference between the people of Okinawa and me?”

At first, I lived with such anxiety and curiosity. However, as I interacted with various people, my anxiety gradually disappeared.

It was encouraging that “people of various nationalities and Japanese people other than Okinawa live in Okinawa”.

One of the major reasons is that it was known that “Okinawa had a history of interaction with various different cultures.”

Then, I respected the differences in customs and words as “differences”, and while I was touching on the culture I was trying to keep, I came to think that “different things are natural” and “different things are okay”.

By the way, this time it is 600 years back in time. Introducing the world heritage site “Zakimi Castle Ruins” in Yomitan Village, central Okinawa Island, which is said to have been built during the Sanzan period.
