ABOUT Shiga Kogen
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.DOWNLOAD SHIGA KOGEN INSIDER'S GUIDE
