Skiing in Kiroro
Kiroro is a medium sized resort (by Japanese standards) based near the west coast of Japan not far from world famous Niseko. Like most resorts in Japan, Kiroro is well known for it’s deep powder skiing due to it’s fantastic snowfall. For those skiers who are looking to stick to the pistes there is varied terrain from beginner to advanced across the three peaks giving you plenty of options to find your favourite run.
A much quieter resort than Niseko, Kiroro is well known for being a family friendly resort with good amenities and lower runs for the kids. For those skiers purely travelling for the powder, you won’t be disappointed as Kiroro has a fantastic lift infrastructure alongside great off piste and side-country/ backcountry access. We do suggest hiring a guide to ensure you have the best off-piste experience and ensure you keep safe.
The Best Bars & Restaurants in Kiroro
For a smaller resort Kiroro still has some fantastic dining options. You won’t have to travel far to find luxury dining as the Hotel Yu Kiroro has one of the finest restaurants in town, Yukashi. Yukashi offers a premium Hokkaido dining experience, using local and seasonal ingredients. Those looking to venture outside the hotel complex can’t go wrong with a visit to Shunsai Steakhouse offering not only exceptional steaks but local fish dishes as well.
If you are looking for a quiet drink after dinner then the Lobby lounge at the Sheraton hotel is a must visit for a drink beside the roaring fireplace. Whilst there isn’t a large amount of nightlife in Kiroro many hotels bars provide the perfect venue for a sophisticated cocktail or sake such as the bar lounge at Alpine Brasserie.
