The Nidom is only about 30 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.
A Place for Lovers
Golfing in Pristine Wilderness
One of the charms that keeps guests coming back to the Nidom is our forested golf course.
This couple decided to celebrate her birthday at the Nidom because she loves golf.
They boarded a plane in the morning, and arrived in time to play a round at the Nidom Classic Course, which is located on the hotel grounds.
The Nidom Classic Course is one of the premier forest golf courses in Japan, and is laid out in our own abundant forest.
This sweeping course has hosted many tournaments, and offers a full array of golfing amenities for all visitors, including course management, shot accuracy, distance, trajectory height, and more.
Relax in a Cottage in the Forest
Breakfast on the Cabin’s Terrace
The next morning, they share breakfast on their cabin’s terrace, drinking in the fresh air and the morning light sparkling on the surface of Lake Tomtom.
The gentle breeze and pure water rejuvenate body and mind.
Breakfast features homemade vegetable juice, bread baked with natural yeast, and organic vegetables grown under special agreements with the producers – the perfect way to start an energetic day.
Today, they decide to take on the 27-hole Ikoro course.
Cycling Through the Forest
Activities on the Hotel Grounds
Someday, this might be the place...
They decided to visit one of the two chapels on the grounds, the Stone Chapel.
Built of Aji granite, a material much loved by the world-renowned artist Isamu Noguchi, the Stone Chapel has a style reminiscent of a European church.
At the end of the long aisle, the altar is beautifully illuminated with soft natural light.
The chapel blends seamlessly into its natural surroundings – exactly the sort of place that she likes. They may find themselves here again someday...
Fine Dining at Ninkur
A Place for Family
Sumptuous Jingisukan Lunch
It’s been a while since their last stay at the Nidom. This time, instead of just husband and wife, three generations have come together to celebrate his 60th birthday.
They want a place where the whole family can let loose and enjoy good food and good conversation, so they choose this restaurant for its stunning view of the golf course and classic jingisukan lunch.
Our thick-cut, choice mutton is grilled to perfection over a charcoal fire for a flavor so rich and delicious it satisfies young and old alike.
Spacious Cottages Everyone Can Enjoy
They have this Eagle’s Nest cottage all to themselves – its six bedrooms are more than enough for the whole family to share.
Granddaughter can’t contain her joy as she runs from room to room exploring this lovely cottage surrounded by forest.
Even with a family spanning three generations, everyone has enough privacy, while the large central living room provides a space for shared family time.
