The Nidom is only about 15 minutes by car from New Chitose Airport.
After exiting the expressway, the road soon enters a verdant forest. This is the gateway to the Nidom.
In the Ainu language, nidom means “abundant forest”.
The gently sloping foothills of Mt. Tarumae are covered in a rich forest of over 1,200 acres, where Ezo spruce, Japanese larch, mizunara oak, and a variety of other trees provide a home for wildlife including Hokkaido red squirrels, Ezo red foxes, and Ezo sika deer.
The Nidom is blessed with the riches of its natural surroundings.
