Shiga Kogen

Shiga Kogen is situated in the heart of the Johshinetsu Kogen National Park.

Shiga Kogen is by far the largest ski resort in Japan, with 21 interlinked resorts all on one lift ticket! Shiga covers a huge area and offers a great diversity of natural terrain.

Shiga Kogen hosted a variety of events in the 1998 Winter Olympics including the women’s downhill, slalom, the super Giant slalom and both snowboarding events. Snow conditions and quality are superb and Shiga has one of the longest seasons in Japan. The extensive lift network enable skiers and snowboarders to easily move around from one resort to the next. A shuttle bus system running non-stop between resorts can also be used for getting between resorts. To actually ski all the runs it would take you days. Yakebitai Yama is the most modern of all the resorts at Shiga and offers customers, fantastic facilities, fast lifts and a great variety of terrain. Yakebitai and the adjoining resort Okushiga are a pleasure to ski, with many wide long runs as well as some great tree skiing.

Adjoining Yakibtaiyama is Ichinose resort and village, which is the best and most central location in Shiga Kogen to be based. Within Ichinose Village a good variety of accomodation is available.
