TOMOHISA ‘Tomo’ Fujita has always been crazy about snowboarding and did alternate seasons in Hakuba and New Zealand during his 20s.
He first visited Niseko 15 years ago and fell in love with the area. Realising the need to get a secure job so he could continue to enjoy Niseko, Tomo started Yummy’s in Kutchan (where Boroya is now). Snowboarding during the day and making pizza at night was perfect for Tomo. Now, Yummy’s is in Hirafu’s lower village – he relocated 6 years ago. In the future, this avid snowboarder wants to do what he does now – surfing, skating, snowboarding and making pizza at night, as well as taking photos and creating art, which you can view at his restaurant.
