This hotel is located in the Shiga Kogen Ski Area, that is a combination of 16 smaller Ski resorts. Okushiga Kogen is one of the 16. It is quite remote, and it takes 5 hours to get there from Tokyo or Nagoya. The manager Fred, who doubles as the resident magician and entertainer, came to pick us up from the...

Staff were really friendly and helpful. Food was fantastic. Hotel has an Onsen on site - really great way to finish the day skiing. Catered well for westerners and locals. Skiing was fantastic. Okushiga kogen resort links up with other ski fields on the same ticket. We were there a week and didnt ski all the options.

It was a true winter wonderland. Not only the ski condition was super good (meaning powdery), it was not crowded at all. And ski in ski out is truly the best. Service at Okushiga Kogen is amazing. GM, Fred, is multi-talented and can entertain guests with various programs. Their xmas program with torch ski down, fireworks, bon-fire program was good...

The location was perfect. All the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Including special vegetarian dinners in both restaurants. Fred the manager was a wonderful host, making us feel welcome and at home as we arrived. Beautiful bar/lounge area with huge fire pit to keep warm, while enjoying the view.
