About Club Med Hokkaido!
Club Med Hokkaido, on the island of Hokkaido is a popular destination with both Japanese and foreign guests due to the lessons offered in English and ski in ski out accommodation which are rarities in Japan. The slopes offer exceptional powder skiing across several mountain chains and clear winter weather with high sunshine. All ability levels are catered for on mountains between 400 and 1,060 meters and for those who need to be put through their paces, Club Med offers an all inclusive ski school. After an exhausting day on the slopes, guests can enjoy a treatment at the spa, unwind in a searing sauna, enjoy a Canadian bath or have a traditional Japanese outdoor hot ofuro while admiring the snow covered slopes. The resort also offers nightly entertainment - live band, billiards, a piano and midnight bar. For the non-skiers, there is also a choice of leisurely day pursuits including nature walks, snow-shoeing and excursions to nearby hot springs.  Recently refurbished the main restaurant and specialty restaurant “Mina Mina”, Club Med Hokkaido is the Japan’s first Club Med resort. Hokkaido opened in 1987 and Kabira, which is located in Okinawa opened in 1999.
