Kick Back and Relax in Luxury in the Untouched Wilds of Hokkaido


Refresh your body, mind, and soul at a resort set in nature


Shizunai is a small town just over two hours from Sapporo, Hokkaido’s capital city. Known for its horse farms, forests, and Ezo mountain cherry trees, it’s a part of the larger town of Shinhidaka, a pastoral and picturesque locale nestled between the Hidaka Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.


Natural Resort Hygeia is a luxury hotel located deep in this beautiful, off-the-beaten-path area. With the ambiance of a snow lodge in the winter, and surrounded by verdant green in the summer, a stay here is sure to heal both inside and out. Traveling this far north in the mountains ensures refuge from Japan’s hot summers. With rooms designed so that nature is just outside every window, you're sure to feel at one with Mother Earth. 



The resort staff focus on providing top-tier dining and relaxation opportunities beyond those of a typical city hotel. Guests looking to truly pamper themselves should be sure to visit their spa for a massage, facial, and more.


Their restaurant highlights the importance of “natural”—which means sourcing local ingredients. The hotel grows most of their organic vegetables on site, and you will definitely taste the difference. Other Hokkaido delicacies include beef and top-quality kombu. Their chefs’ superb plating skills are certain to make for a special memory.


Access: From Sapporo Station, take the Suzuran limited express train to Tomakomai Station (about 50 minutes) then transfer to the local train on the Hidaka Line to Mukawa Station (about 30 minutes) and take a taxi to the resort, or check on the availability of the resort’s shuttle bus from Shizunai Station (about 30 minutes). Alternatively, traveling by car from Sapporo Station will take between two hours 20 minutes to three hours.
