Dominwari Discounts on Accommodation for Hokkaido Residents

What is Dominwari?

The Hokkaido government will offer discounts to tourist-related businesses under a system called Dominwari (どうみん割). Dominwari will be rolled out from 1 July, 2020 in an aim to promptly recover travel demand that has significantly fallen due to the impact of coronavirus.

Discounts are available to Hokkaido residents only for travel expenses in Hokkaido of up to ¥10,000 per night. The total grant contributed by the government is ¥2.3 billion, and the campaign will end when the budget has been reached.

Dominwari allows tourism businesses to offset rates, in turn reducing the price for guests to reserve their accommodation. As part of this incentive, MnK Niseko is offering reduced rates to Hokkaido residents who choose to stay with us for 2 nights/3 days throughout August. See our full offer details in Japanese here.

Hokkaido residents save money based on their spend within each category. See the table below for a breakdown.
