The first impression about the hotel is horrible and has totally ruined our trip.
We all know the Hotel is providing people who travelled from overseas to have the feeling of "home", especially when you have a long flight. So besides the facilities (e.g. room, restaurant..), "people/staff" will be the key and the most important reason for this hotel to have repeat guest.
We found this hotel online with good reviews and the activities they provide looks so attractive and the price is reasonable, so we tried to book the room through hotel website, however, the website direct us to "travel agent" which we did not realize.
Upon making booking, we have selected flight (3pax) cum accommodation (room for 5pax) as we have another friend flying from overseas to join us.
After we arrive hotel and feel so excited to check in, we found out that we need to pay extra fee for the fourth person with a huge shock, while we already paid the room charges for 5pax.
As per the receptionist, she said "We are charging per headcount in Japan". This is so ridiculous! And the worst thing is, the charges for additional headcount is around USD1,100 which equals to 3pax (flight + accommodation for 5pax), do you think is acceptable?!
We tried to negotiate with the female receptionist if we can only pay for the breakfast charge, cause there is no point that we need to pay that much since the room is able to fit in for 4pax anUd we have paid the room for 5pax.
But the one and only reply from her is "YOU NEED TO PAY", with firm tone and unacceptable attitude.
I thought she might misunderstood so I explained again. However, she still insist. During this period, although we feel helpless, but we still remain calm and wishing miracle could happen, but the female staff is being so rude!
So, we have no choice but to seek assistance from her Manager, here's the most epic part!
3 - 4 manager came and try to figure out what happened as we have stood there for more than 1 hour (funny thing is, during this period, no one come and greet us or offer any seat or try to solve the problem), and, not surprise, MANAGERS ALSO NEVER GREET US OR INTRODUCE THEMSELVES WHEN THEY APPROACH AND NO EYE CONTACT WITH US!!!
What kind of hotel is this??? Do their management train them to treat guest like this?
I thought the managers will be more considerate, however, MANAGERS NEVER TALK TO US, he only listens to what the staff said, and they all communicate in JAPANESE!!! This is so disrespect to foreigners who can't understand Japanese! From what I understand from their tone is, they feel funny about the things that I have being trying to explain and negotiate. After so long of the female staff complaining to her manager, the manager said something and left the counter, without attending to us!
And you know what the female staff says? "YOU NEED TO PAY USD1,100 FOR THE FORTH PAX"
HUH?????? After 10 mins for discussing with the manager, the only reply is still the same? Not even any apology from the manager for letting us standing there for so long just to wait for the reply. I really cannot accept this kind of treatment.
We even ask for staff who can speak Mandarin to help us translate into Japanese on our inquires, but the answer is still the same. NO ANY MANAGER COME AND SOLVE THIS! ONLY PUSHING THOSE STAFF WHO DO NOT HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE DECISION TO ATTEND US! What kind of manager is this???
2 hours has passed, we felt so frustrated, upset, tired and helpless, our planned all got postponed because of this abrupt issue! We have no choice but to pay the unreasonable price, since we cannot get any help even from higher management.
Now that I am back to my own country and feels that I cannot just let this go.
I am a hotelier as well, and I know that I would NEVER do this to my guest, especially those we do not understand English, and my manager NEVER taught me this way!
So I would like to share this experience to everyone that this is the most ludicrous hotel and experience that I have ever encountered, and I would like to have REFUND!

While the accommodations and amenities were excellent, but the staff there had a very poor and unacceptable attitude! Firstly, I booked a 5-pax room for my family of 4 to stay, however, they actually told me that in addition to the 5-pax room, I had to pay more money per headcount. And so I thought okay, maybe, in this case, I should just downgrade to a 3-pax room and add an extra bed instead but was denied of this. After many inquiries, we realized that there indeed are 3-pax rooms that were available as well, but we were not permitted to have a 3-pax room.
So never mind the above, what was more ridiculous was that the cost of one extra headcount was around US$1,100 because the stay was for 4 nights. And because we ordered the accommodation in conjunction with the flight package. This extra headcount also includes the cost of the flight when we already have paid for it, when we booked for the initial 5-pax room.

And when we wanted to raise the complaint, the staff denied us of this and simply kept insisting that this is “how Japan does things” and “the only way out is to pay”. And that’s not all! When the manager heard our commotion, he actually went to ask the staff what happen and to my utter disbelief, I did not know what the staff spoke to the manager, the manager did not even greet us and left us alone with the staff.

Eventually, 2 hours had passed and we were overseas and helpless, with the only solution being only to pay (after all we are foreign tourists and do not speak their native language), so we acceded to their request as we are at their mercy.

Now that I am back, I realized I simply cannot let this issue get past me (after all it cost me an unnecessary USD 1,100!

This is simply unacceptable! Especially in Japan such a cultured nation.

Great place for skiing and a lovely view from our room. Many restaurant choices for breakfast and dinner which were included in the resort package. Must visit the Unkai Terrace, magnificent view especially winter time 💕💕💕.

We had a fantastic experience at Hoshino Tomamu Tower. We were delighted with Room size, and activities abound. We skied and used rental equipment at the Tower. Snow Shoe walking was fabulous. Breakfast was amazing each morning. We found the surrounding restaurants too expensive, but the shop sells instant noodles and soup which we had many nights.

The twin room is not so big, there are 2 space in the room, bed room only for 2 single bed and small living room, although the sofa can become a single bed. If you happen to go there in the winter time, there’s no extra blanket in the room.

Can anyone share with me the approximate room price for a family room in December?
Answer from Virginia
Jun 2019 |
I paid SGD 950 a night and it’s for 2 person only. This includes breakfast. With December, there is a minimum of 2 nights if I am not wrong. We stayed 3 nights. You can look at their website for prices, there are packages which comes with ski .

The hotel is definitely open for booking. We have already booked our trip this Dec at least a month ago, even enjoying the early bird offer. Since you are going at the beginning of Dec, it is not peak season yet and price is relatively ok. It also depends on whether you include the skiing package or not. The drive there is 1.5 hours, also similar by train. But budget more time for snow conditions, looking for directions, getting on and off transport. Last time we drove back to Sapporo there was a diversion of traffic due to snow storm causing a huge reroute for us. Also traffic in and out of Sapporo can be horrible. Check hotel website, they offer a lot of kids activities. Also playground, sleds, etc. Indoor swimming/ wave pool (included in ski package) is very popular. We did google restaurants nearby but only found a few with 90 mins away by car. For us it is not worth it for the drive. On top of that, there are tons of restaurants on site. We stayed for 4 days last time and never once did we repeat the restaurant (except for buffet breakfast). Let say it is a hot tub. We don't know whether the water is spring water or not but good enough for relaxing after a whole day on the slope. Also, it is available to both males and females.

I am not sure about the tower, but we stayed at Resonate and no, the window can't be opened. If you prefer cool fresh air, you may need to turn off the A/C, but you still can't get fresh air. The indoor sauna and whirlpool are sweet. As for the restaurant, you will have to avoid peak hours because it's first come first serve.

Hi, I stayed in room for 2persons. However, as shown on their website that "Risonare Tomamu, we provide a new type of room that accommodates up to six guests. Families traveling with three generations or many children, and even groups of friends can use this type of room to enjoy their vacation together." I believe it wld be perfect for your family. There are quite a few restaurants in the resort, makes it easy to dine with families without too much walking/ driving. I am not sure the rate, I would recommend you to contact them for exact room rate for Dec period. :)
