Skiing was introduced to Japan more than 100 years ago. Only 19 years later, a giant ski area was established in Shiga Kogen, a highland area in the mountains where there had been nothing. With its more than 85-year history, Shiga Kogen is supported by those with an enthusiastic love of winter sports, and it offers back the full “Omotenashi” spirit. No matter who comes to visit, this winter resort is prepared to host them. Hotels, hot springs, restaurants, ski rental, pro shops, kids parks, and more.

※OMOTENASHI means giving visitors heartfelt care, a warm welcome, and service.
 Since long ago in Japan, it has been a practice to value customers,
 considering it to be a once-in-a-lifetime encounter.
