With so many direct flights to Japan these days, the Land of the Rising Sun has become even more attractive to holidaymakers and while Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto are always popular, the northern island of Hokkaido is also well worth a visit. Among the attractions is Kiroro, a pristine area of great natural beauty boasting some of the world’s best powder snow in the winter and lush forests and alpine flower fields in the summer, and it is just a two-hour drive from Sapporo’s new Chitose airport.
This fantastic destination is home to Sheraton Hokkaido Kiroro Resort, one of Japan’s best ski hotels in the winter and a great base to explore the local area. The resort offers 140 contemporary and stylish guestrooms and suites with mountain or garden views that are ideal for a family trip.
The Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience is always good for a restful sleep, and each room has free high-speed Wi-Fi access, a flat-screen TV and smart phone. Kids under 12 can share their parents’ room and rollaway cots can also be provided. Breakfast and dinner are served at in the hotel at World Buffet Rivierouge, which offers stunning mountain views, with Hokki Robata Grill & Sushi open only during the ski seasons. Other great dining can be found nearby. The hotel also boasts an indoor pool, onsen hot spring and fitness centre.
Make the most of the fresh, clean air in one of the world’s most pristine destinations while it is still relatively undiscovered and combine it with Sheraton’s rich legacy of hospitality and service for a memorable family getaway.
