Hoshino Resorts Tomamu in central Hokkaido had overcome many difficulties.

This resort, one of the leading ski resorts in Hokkaido, opened in 1983 under a different name from what it has today.  With many facilities such as a golf course, swimming pool and restaurants, two skyscraper hotels, as shown in the center of the photo, were opened in 1989.  Thereafter, in 1992, a pair of skyscraper hotels on the right in the photo were additionally built and the resort enjoyed its prosperity.  However, just at that time, asset deflation began in Japan, and the failure of the main bank was followed by the bankruptcy of a related group of operating companies.  Due to this hardship, the resort was obliged to shut down operations for a while, but thanks to the financial support from Shimukappu Village authorities, the resort was able to survive.

After many twists and turns, the resort is now operated by Hoshino Resorts under the name of Hoshino Resorts Tomamu and it has regained the former hustle.

*Hoshino Resorts is highly regarded for its track record of revitalizing underperforming resort facilities in Japan.
