ABOUT Shiga Kogen

Dec - April

Shiga Kogen is both the largest interconnected resort and highest resort in all of Japan meaning there’s so much terrain to explore, with something for all abilities. However, off-piste is limited here compared to other resorts. Shiga Kogen is one of the best value ski destinations if you book early too – capitalise on our early bird deals and you’ll get ski-in ski-out accommodation for a fraction of the price. The one thing Shiga Kogen has less of is its nightlife, with only a handful of restaurants and bars, most of which are located within the hotels.
