Club Med Sahoro takes pride in preparing locally-sourced food of the freshest and finest ingredients.   Enjoy the spectacular view at the foot of our sparkling snow-covered slopes as you feast on the finest food with friends and family.

For a true Hokkaido cultural experience, enjoy one of our special excursions.* Gallop away the stress of life on a horseback ride through the snow, as you take in tranquil scenery and enjoy local wildlife. Transport yourself back in time as you enjoy traditional Hokkaido ice fishing.  Catch Japanese smelt fish, known as the dazzling fairies under the ice, and enjoy the comfort of heated tents as your delicious catch is cooked for you to eat on the spot.
