Cosmos Hotel Management Co., which manages the MIMARU apartment hotel chain, beloved by Australian visitors to Japan, will be exhibiting at Snow Travel Expo 2024 in Sydney on May 26, 2024. For families planning to visit winter resorts in Japan, here is a list of hints and recommended day trips in the three categories of Cuisine, Entertainment, and Gifts and Souvenirs in Tokyo.

Tokyo Cuisine, Entertainment, and Gifts

-Three recommended one-day outings:

MIMARU is the leading apartment hotel chain where families and friends can comfortably stay together in spacious rooms furnished with kitchens. With locations in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, one in every ten Australians visiting Japan stays at a MIMARU (based on actual data as of September 2023(*1)). Getting to Niseko from Haneda or Narita airports is easy; add a few days in Tokyo before or after the winter resort holiday to make the trip to Japan exponentially more memorable.

Top 7 reasons why visitors choose MIMARU

-27 locations across the three often-traveled cities of Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka.

-Spacious rooms (40 m2 to 100 m2) to comfortably spend time together.

-Each apartment has a kitchen and living/dining area, and laundry facilities are available.

-Friendly service by English-speaking staff, from 34 countries or regions.

-Three MIMARU locations made Trip Advisor’s “Top 20 Foreign Travelers’ Best Hotels in Japan” list two years running(*2).

-MIMARU’s official Instagram has content and suggestions to make the trip to Japan even more delightful; many posts rack up millions of views.

-Easy access to winter resorts: Hakuba or Iwate is only a two-to-three-hour Shinkansen (“Bullet Train”) ride from Tokyo Station.

MIMARU is not just a place to sleep. Guest rooms are approx. 40 m2 or larger and have a kitchen and a living/dining area each. Other room types include Japanese-styled rooms, two-bedroom suites, and concept rooms such as the Pokemon Room, where the whole family can experience the world of Pokemon.
