You will find a new Shiga Kogen every time you visit.

The Shiga Kogen has wonderful scenery in each season. In winter, when the air is very clear, the beauty of the scenery is particularly special, and the sight of pure white ice trees and rime with the blue sky is indescribable. Some days are mild, while others are freezing cold, but all of them are part of Shiga Kogen's attraction. We hope you will experience the closeness of the mountains and the breathtaking panoramic views from the top of the mountains, which are usually hard to experience in Japan.

For those who enjoy skiing and snowboarding with staying over, we recommend using the common ticket for all 18 ski resorts so that you can ski the slopes more freely. Recently, snowshoeing tours in the snowfields with a guide and snowmobile tours (snow monster tours) on Yokoteyama are also gaining popularity. After enjoying the snowy mountains, relax with special cuisine, local beer, and hot springs at each lodging facility. Waking up in the fresh air in the morning is also a unique highland experience.
