History:

Haboro is situated in the north of Hokkaido island and flourished with the establishment of coal mines (“tankou”) from 1950 until 1970’s. The “Chikubetu Tankou” was the main coal mine in these times and there up to 30.000 people lived.
The ski jumping hill there was con­struc­ted by the mining company in 1950’s and after its completion it was the second largest ski jump of Japan after Okurayama at Sapporo. National competitions and training camps were organized there and the local company jumping team was very successful, too. So Akio Kasaya, brother of 1972 Olympic gold medal winner at Sapporo Yukio Kasaya, jumped for Haboro Tankou and was a main promoter of Japanese ski jumping activities.
With the closing of the coal mine in 1970 the ski jump was given up and dilapidated; and the Chikubetu settlement lies in ruins, too
