JAPAN’S LARGEST SKI AREA!
Shiga Kogen is a Mecca for skiing and winter sports enthusiasts. Located just a short distance from Tokyo, Shiga Kogen is easily the largest ski area in Japan, and offers an amazing 21 interlinked ski resorts all covered by one ski pass. The accommodation villages, scattered throughout the central ski areas, offer a wide variety of resort and lodge options, with a coach shuttle operating all day through the region (free with all ski passes). The great selection of bars and restaurants in the area offer Australians a traditional Japanese eating experience, with delicious hot food and sake a great bonus in a still largely undiscovered destination for international skiers.
