Sheraton Hokkaido Kiroro Resort
Sheraton Hokkaido Kiroro Resort

Hokkaido's Kiroro Resort is one of the best all-season destinations in Asia. To position itself as a contender in Japan's the MICE space, the resort recently introduced a series of natural venues, group experiences, luxury accommodations, as well as a variety of unique activities and attractions. 

The Kiroro Resort is made up of two five-star establishments: the 140-key Sheraton Hokkaido Kiroro Resort and the 282-key The Kiroro, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel. Together, both hotels offer a dozen restaurants and bars, as well as a myriad indoor and outdoor venues that accommodate business groups of all types and sizes. 

It is not a stretch to call Kiroro Resort one of the best all-season destinations, either. In winter, nearby terrains offer some of Asia's deepest snowfall and powder skiing opportunities, perfect for groups that want to enjoy team-building exercises, such as team ski races, snowmobile races and other snow-based activities. In summer, the green hills of the Yoichi mountains are ideal for golfing, fly fishing, mountain biking, hiking and exploring the region's unique food culture. Memorable activities can be built around the local cuisine, such as fruit picking, farming and wine tasting. 

There are other seasonal activities on offer as well. Groups can visit the nearby Lake Yashio, where they will get to enjoy a gourmet meal prepared on the shores of the alpine lake. Planners can even go as far as planning an overnight stay at Crest, Kiroro's mountain-top restaurant, which overlooks the majestic ski slopes.
