Firstly, thank you for organising our family group of 8 adults and 2 children. It was a little tricky to coordinate but everything went smoothly as planned. The package you customised for us included: breakfast, dinner, lift tickets, transfers and unlimited access to Minna Minna Beach and the Ice Village, and was excellent.
Some further comments below.
Our 4x rooms were perfect with everyone having wonderful mountain views. Clean, comfortable and well serviced. There is a coin laundry in Tower 2.
In our group we had a Gluten Free dietary restriction, as well as the usual likes and dislikes, so I was concerned that perhaps we would have some problems. Thankfully, everyone was satisfied at the various restaurants we ate at, so we were able to eat together every breakfast and evening.
Nininupuri and Hal buffet restaurants provided icon signs near foods with the major allergies listed, which was very helpful.
Our favorite restaurants were:
1) Altezza Italian. Hotalu Street.
Serving made to order pasta dishes, pizza and an “Italian barbecue", where meat, vegetables and seafood were grilled at the table....so some options for our GF
2) Japanese pub,Kanemaru Goto Shoten- Foresta Mall
3) Green Kitchen GAO Outdoor Center
For lunch, plenty of options but sometimes we just bought a simple and inexpensive sandwich at the convenience store and enjoyed a hot chocolate at the Cafe Bar, Yukku Yukku.
3.Weather and Skiing
As you would be aware, the snowfall was well below the January norm. Whilst a little disappointing for the skiers and boarders, it was great weather and conditions for the children to learn to ski.
4. Other Activities
Minna Minna Beach, onsen and Ice Village were wonderful diversions for the kids. Also the gondola ride and short walk to the Terrace of Snow Trees and Cloud Walk, I highly recommend on a clear day.
All in all a great week in Tomamu, due to excellent facilities and service.
Many thanks for your help and patience.
