Will Japan reopen in time for the winter ski season?
Kiroro resort in Hokkaido has reopened with a raft of promotional offers.
The property opened its doors on July 1 following months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The all-season, alpine resort is nestled in the Yoichi mountains of Kiroro and is an ideal location if you’re looking for fresh air, great scenery and plenty of space.
“After months of staying at home, we are delighted to welcome back guests to our beautiful alpine resort,” said Hirofumi Watanabe, hotel general manager Kiroro Resort. “With breathtaking mountain vistas, a variety of outdoor activities and thoughtful amenities, Kiroro is the ideal getaway for those seeking outdoor luxury, wellness and rejuvenation after a challenging spring.”
Japan is currently closed to international visitors and has been focusing on its domestic travel market. However, most of Asia will be waiting with baited breath to hear if the country will be reopening to overseas guests for the winter ski season. As yet, there is no news.
Over the past months, Kiroro has been working on developing new hygiene protocols to meet and improve on the health guidelines set by local and national governments.
Summer deals include the Kiroro Premium BBQ Package which includes overnight accommodation, breakfast, BBQ dinner and daily Onsen. The package is available until August 31 and starts at JPY4,800 for adults and JPY3,300 for children.
The Kiroro Driving Guide Package is offered until November 11 and includes overnight accommodation, a Kita-Shari driving book containing driving routes for exploring Hokkaido’s coastline, daily breakfast and daily Onsen. Prices start at JPY13,000.
Looking ahead to the ski season, if you buy a five-night ski package at Kiroro you’ll receive a Season Pass for the entire ski season.
