Introduction of Unkai Terrace (the sea of clouds)
It will be a good idea to wake up early in order to see the sea of clouds beneath your eyes. You may be able to see the sea of clouds moving over the mountains from the Unkai terrace at about 1080 meters
above sea level with gondola ride. There is about 40% chance for the sea of clouds to be visible, which is subject to weather conditions such as weak wind. You are lucky to be able to see them!
There are many ways to have fun in the sea of clouds besides Unkai Terrace. You can walk on the wooden deck designed with the image of walking on the sea of clouds, sleep on white cushions resembling clouds, or enjoy the floating sensation on the huge hammock ”Cloud Pool”-like deck above a net.

Have a rest while getting close to animals such as goats and cows on the farm in the hotel. Unique experiences such as lying in hammocks in the shades on the breezy farm and napping on the special bed with grass are only available at Hoshino Resorts TOMAMU.

What is Hoshino Resorts
Hoshino Resorts was first established as a Japanese inn/ryokan by Kasuke Hoshino in 1914 in Karuizawa in Nagano Prefecture before it began the operation of other resorts in Japan. Today, it has evolved into a highly influential hotel management company and is run by 4th-generation family member Yoshiharu Hoshino. Providing a unique experience focused on the local charms of each destination and a high level of omotenashi Japanese-style hospitality, the company has expanded rapidly out of Karuizawa since 2001 and now operates 37 facilities both in and outside Japan (as of 2018) under four distinct brands: HOSHINOYA luxury flagships, KAI hot spring resorts, RISONARE resort hotels, and OMO city tourism hotels.
