Asahidake Ropeway review
I was definitely mislead by "the tallest mountain in Hokkaido," I was expecting a lot more vert.

As it was time at Asahidake went like this - wait for the rope way, battle the wind for 500m to get across a skating rink of an upper mountain, enjoy 15 of the best turns you'll find anywhere in blower pow, freeze your ass off riding a flat cattrack back to the ropeway, wait 10 min for the ropeway to leave - repeat

Hoshino Resort Tomamu review by hipsterandjane
This is a pretty surreal place. We had not planned on going there, but we ran into a well traveled Hokkaido skiier that called it the most underrated resort in Japan.

I won't go that far, but I definitely had a great time there. It is an over the top resort by all measures. Ice Bar, Wave Pool, 40 story hotels - over the top!

That being said I have never stayed on the 35th
