Sitting at 1,500meters above see level and right n the slopes at the Shiga
Kogen ski resort, this is a premier ski hotel. The Oku Shiga Area is known
throughout Japan as "the skiers paradise"
The hotel is right at the very northern side of Shiga Kogen and is connected
by ski lifts to over 80 ski courses and more than 60 lifts. Although the slopes
at Oku Shiga Kogen are for skiers only (no snowboarders), the hotel will happily
run you the 3 minutes to Yakebitaiyama where snowboarders can clip in and
enjoy the vast Shiga Kogen.
There are 3 on site restaurants, serving French, Japanese and western
Cuisine. There is also a cocktail lounge / bar to relax in and relive the day on
Also on site is a large Japanese style bathhouse, with panoramic views
over the slopes. This is an excellent way to revive tired legs after a day on
Ski wear is sold on site and rentals are also available. So don't panic if
you've forgotten to pack your goggles or gloves.
