SHIGA KOGEN - Japan’s largest resort !

Made up of 21 linked ski resorts, Shiga Kogen is immense. You can take 3 days to ski from one end to the other! The terrain is so varied that there is truly something for everyone.

The accommodation tends to be western or Japanese hotel style, based around the individual ski resorts. Some of the hotels are fantastic, others are extremely average, from first hand experience, we have picked the best options for you.

Shiga Kogen isn’t a mecca of nightlife or shopping, but it is fantastic for groups of keen skiers. If you want to go hard during the day and then chill out over a fantastic meal and a beer and warm up in an onsen, Shiga Kogen is the perfect resort for you.
