Winter fun in Japan

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Japan‘s Golden Triangle, from Tokyo to Kanazawa and completing at Osaka – all within Honshu, Japan’s main island – represents the best that the country has to offer: gorgeous mountains laden with snow, delectable cuisine and steaming, natural onsens. This winter season, venture a few degrees east and visit Kiroro, one of Hokkaido’s premier ski resorts synonymous with perfect powder and luxurious offerings.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

With its fantastic lift infrastructure that spans across the entire resort, guests can expect quick, short lifts that will get them to the slopes in the least amount of time.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

There are just two hotels in Kiroro, but both offer stellar views of the slopes: there’s the conveniently located Sheraton Hokkaido Kiroro Resort, or The Kiroro, a refined boutique hotel that offers a bathhouse with natural spring water to keep you warm through the snowy winter.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

The Kiroro Onsen boasts a large natural caldera hot spring with water that flows from the Akaigawa Village – best of all, the bath is set amidst Kiroro’s natural landscape, offering guests views of the pristine, snowy forest as they soak in mineral-rich waters. Alternatively, the hot stone sauna Ganbanyoku lets guests sweat it out.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

There, guests can quite literally head out for a day of skiing right from their doorstep. The residences boast fully-furnished apartments, complete with a ski valet, natural indoor-outdoor onsen, and a luxury club house. [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Subscribe to the latest edition now by clicking here.
