Activities & Tours
Kiroro has a few alternate activities to skiing and snowboarding, but most of the Kiroro activities are more aimed at those that can be undertaken after skiing time. There is also a major focus on bridal services, so if you want to get married whilst on your ski holiday there’s even a wedding chapel!
The Snow Park is located next to The Kiroro Tribute Hotel, offering lots of snow toys, sledding and tubing. A small daily fee is applied for children 4 and above, which provides unlimited access. The Snow Park is only open 10am to 4pm, so adults will have to forego some skiing or boarding time to take the kids to the park.
Kids can go snow rafting on an inflatable raft towed behind a snowmobile or banana boating (kids 6 and up). Each ride only lasts for 5 minutes. Other activities include rolling around in a bubble ball or there are mini snowmobiles (kids 6 and up).
The resort offers some indoor craft activities for kids such as decorating ceramics.
Kiroro also has various festivals throughout the season and special fireworks evenings.
Other Kiroro Activities
Snow shoeing tours go for a picturesque “stroll” through the forest for 90 minutes (ages 9 and above only). Alternatively you can take pleasure in the serenity of the forest on a snowcat, a grooming machine that has a cabin on the back. The snowcat tours last about one hour. To really enjoy the Kiroro scenery, you can go on a combination tour that takes in the snowcat ride as well as the snow shoeing.
Other options are to ride on a snow-specific Segway or snow buggy, or there are evening snowmobile rides.
Après Ski Activities
Kiroro Town has a large entertainment area. For an hourly rate you can use the billiards room or the table tennis table. There are lots of arcade games for the kids and big kids. More adult oriented games are found upstairs, with hundreds of pachinko machines, metal coin games, and other quasi gambling type machines.
The Resort Centre has some hot baths that are complimentary for hotel guests and great for a soak after a hard day on the slopes.
Down at Kiroro Town, the “yu-yu-kan” has both indoor and outdoor onsens as well as an outdoor plunge pool. The stonework around the hot springs is delightful and the outdoor pools in particular are a beautiful spot to relax whilst the snowing is falling.

The complex also has a 25 metre swimming pool with a Jacuzzi and sauna, and a separate area for children.
If your body is feeling really weary, there are also massage services including acupressure and reflexology.
Hotel Piano also has a day spa with various aesthetic and rejuvenating treatments.
