Village Info in Sahoro
Sahoro Getting Around
Shuttle buses operate between the Sahoro Resort Hotel and the gondola station throughout the day, but both of the hotels are essentially ski-in and ski-out. Aside from this, most of the activities are located within the hotels anyway, and there’s very little else you’ll need to get to.
Sahoro ATMs, Bank & Cash
There is, unfortunately, no ATM within the resort area. The closest ATM is located at the Seven-Eleven convenience store or at the Post Office a 15-minute drive away in the town of Shintoku.
Both hotels at Sahoro include a small shopping space where you can pick up a few snacks and drinks, as well as some of the local souvenirs, namely rice wine, bear cookies, bear mugs, key rings, and teddy bears. Did you pick up a theme? Although hibernating during the winter time, bears wander the mountains near Sahoro in the summer. The original Sahoro Resort bear design items are adorable, it will be difficult to resist purchasing for yourself or someone back at home.
Sahoro Onsen Guide
There aren’t any public onsens in the village, however the three hotels all have onsens, which can be used for free by guests and for a small fee by visitors. The Tokachi Sahoro Resort has its Ion Spa, open from 6 am until 8 am and then again from 2 pm until midnight. There are both heated and cool baths here, all with mineralized water, as well as a sauna, all situated in stunning rooms with large picture windows overlooking greenery and natural settings. There is also an attached treatment room where you can get yourself a fantastic relaxing massage, too! Club Med also offers some fantastic relaxing facilities, including a great outdoor onsen, again overlooking the serene natural surroundings, as well as individual and couple’s treatment rooms.
