Summary

Hotel Mount Shiga offers some of Ichinose's most economic, yet decent value accommodation. This humble hotel in the heart of the village prioritizes functionality over luxury, and will appeal to groups that would rather value over luxury. 

Quick Facts
    • Affordable
    • Great location
    • English speaking staff
    • Wonderful views

Hotel Mount Shiga is located on the slopes of Ichinose, offering ski-in ski-out access and close to the shops and restaurants in the village. It's far from the fanciest hotel in the area, instead offering an unpretentious alternative for visitors who just want a reliable, no nonsense place to crash. Mount Shiga is conveniently positioned right in the middle of the village, and delivers clean, comfortable rooms in both western and Japanese styles. Although Mount Shiga's biggest selling point is its affordability, it still has plenty of great amenities. There's an on site bath house for relaxing after a day on the slopes, including jacuzzi jets. It's a great set up for anyone with aching muscles after a day on the slopes. There's also a restaurant, which dishes up some decent Japanese and western meals. Plus, they have a fairly comfortable bar that's good for a drink in the evening.

Finally, this humble hotel actually has some pretty amazing views, particularly from the balcony area. It's a real treat to be able to wake up first thing in the morning and see the glistening white slopes staring back at you. All up, it's a great choice for groups that are either on a budget, or just anyone who prioritizes functionality over luxury.

Accommodation

The hotel has a combination of western and Japanese style rooms ranging in size and style to cater to all group sizes. They have a great on site restaurant that offers a good food selection of Japanese and western cuisine. After skiing relax in the large indoor bath-houses located with the hotel. On top of this, they have a few other nice features, such as wi-fi and gear rentals. They also boast English speaking staff, which can be a real help.

Surf & Other Activities

Somewhat less well known than its more famous cousin Hakuba, Shiga Kogen has become increasingly popular in recent years as an alternative to some of Japan's other, more well trodden ski areas. Like Hakuba, Shiga Kogen is located within a stone throw of Nagano city, and offers long seasons with high quality skiing. One of Shiga Kogen's biggest draw cards is its altitude: even when it's raining down in Nagano, you can expect snow in Shiga Kogen. The region is also quite diverse, with 22 ski areas and over 120 lifts. Outside ski season, the area offers some decent hiking, and the nearby Nagano has some great cultural attractions.
