Established in 1956, Kamori Kanko is the largest tourism, resort and leisure company in Hokkaido. With a heritage that includes the inception of the island’s first major amusement park, year-round resort and national snowboarding competition, Kamori Kanko has successfully presented Hokkaido’s glories to the world for more than half a century.

At one time Kamori Kanko’s international interests included the USA’s Steamboat Springs, Heavenly Valley and Sabel Point Country Club. The sale of these three properties to the American Ski Co. was such a remarkable success that it became a case study for Harvard University students.

Under the guidance of CEO Kimihito Kamori, Kamori Kanko operates a wealth of successful tourism ventures in Japan and abroad, including ski resorts, golf clubs, wildlife reserves and tour operations.
