Scout tips

  • It’s not possible to ski in and out from the Kiroro Tribute Portfolio hotel
  • You can opt for an upgrade, for a fee of course, to the Kiroro floor where your room will include an espresso machine, blue tooth speakers, first track pass, free onsen, and easy check-in and check-out
  • The Standard room is quite big and makes a good choice for those who do not want to pay extra
  • Some of the rooms located on the lower floor may look out to other parts of the building
  • Free shuttle to and from the ski base area which leaves every ten minutes 


A big, busy, vibrant hotel especially during the ski season, The Kiroro Tribute Portfolio Hotel (previously called Hotel Piano) caters to the an upscale market that prefers a modern Japanese compared to the very westernised Sheraton up the road. 

The hotel has 282 rooms with numerous types of accommodations you can choose from ranging from the standard twin rooms to ihuge suite rooms. The suites are equipped with massage chairs and bathrooms which are by the window so you get great views while taking a bath! All the rooms are very spacious and are some of the biggest Scout has seen in Japan.  All of the rooms are tastefully designed (albiet with a lot of pastel colors Japan is so famous for), well-maintained and clean. Most of the rooms have great views of the mountain and ski slopes but there are some rooms especially those located on the lower floors, looks out to other buildings.

There are a ton of extra activities to enjoy in The Kiroro Tribute Portfolio Hotel including six restaurants, two bars, and a grand lobby where you can enjoy music coming from the grand piano – but don’t get spooked like Scout did, it plays automatically without a piano player! If you want to have a bath in one of the lovely outdoor onsens at next door Kiroro Town. Other facilities at Kiroro Town include a day spa, hot bath, swimming pool, entertainment complex and a few shops. The Kiroro might not be right at the ski base area but it makes up for it with its very spacious rooms, facilities, restaurants, accommodating staff, and much more.
