The big problem is that you need some luck for viewing Unkai. Because there is less than 49% for occurring Unkai. Also, if a scale of wind is high, cablecar is not operated.
Tomamu resort is located in the south of Minami Furano town. It takes about 2 hours from Sapporo by car with Hokkaido Expressway and 3 hours with No Expressway.
