Kiroro Ski and Snowboard Shopping

The main Kiroro ski and snowboard shop is the Vainqueur Ski Shop in the Mountain Center. This is a pretty good store that stocks some high end gear as well as more affordable brands. Outerwear brands include SOS and Peak Performance, and they have a huge range of ski and snowboard accessories such as POC helmets and goggles. Unlike many Japanese ski resorts, Kiroro also sells hardwear and the shop has a decent range of skis, snowboards, boots and bindings.

There’s also a shop inside The Kiroro Tribute Hotel that sells some basic ski and snowboard accessories.

Or The Market in Kiroro Town has a small amount of North Face gear and other ski and snowboard sundries.

Souvenir & General Shopping

The Sheraton Hotel has one small shop that sells various souvenirs, souvenir type confectionary, general snacks, and beverages including the alcoholic type. They sell lots of Otaru glassware trinkets such as figurines and jewellery, and some really hideous wood carvings.

The Resort Centre has the Center Shop which sells a range of snacks, drinks, basic souvenirs, and a few general sundries.

The main Kiroro shopping can be found down at The Kiroro Tribute Hotel and the adjoining Kiroro Town, a small promenade of shops and restaurants. The “market” has a large souvenir shop that sells Kiroro souvenirs, Otaru glassware, general Japanese kitsch souvenirs, and an abundance of impractical knick-knacks.

Grocery Shopping

Whilst there are snacks, basic beverages, and a few sundries available at the Kiroro shops, there is no specific grocery store. If you need medications, nappies or other groceries, you’ll need to get these in Otaru.
