In general, I think shiga kogen might be more connected in terms of ski slopes than Hakuba, but I'd definitely not recommend coming here for skiing. The restaurant choices are limited, transportation is limited, and hotels are very spread out. i.e. there's no town to walk into after skiing to eat, drink, onsen, etc. For the hotel, the meals were...

There are 3 properties of Prince hotel group located in Shigakogen. I stay in the West wing and try few restaurants in the Prince group. I found the main dining room at the East wing has provided the best ambience & good quality for the guests. A group of skiing friends enjoyed a fantastic Xmas dinner at the main dining...

We stayed in the West of the three Prince Hotels. Its pretty huge and very dated but functional, small but comfortable rooms, crazily expensive self service meals (Dinner buffet included western and Japanese food but was nearly Y5,000 and no way worth that) served in an aircraft hanger of a restaurant - cafeteria more like - , great onsen on...

We stayed in the south wing, building/interior is dated, but still OK. Dinner buffet is 5000yen and not quite worth it. Views from room are stunning, staff is very helpful. Beds are not that comfortable, nor are the pillows - bring your own if you can! Overall, good for the price (paid about 13000yen). Bring snow chains!

An aging hotel that feels like the 90s era it was built in. Small rooms with modest accommodations, but conveniently located for skiing, which is the point, right? Definitely not a splurge, this hotel did the trick, but wasn't something to write home about.

The Prince hotel has three buildings (West, South and East) and we stayed in the South Wing, which offers a convenient and direct access to the Gondola 2 of the Yakebitaiyama ski resort. The hotel clearly shows signs of aging but they managed to keep it in good shape. The rooms are small, within the Japanese average size, but still...

Location is the main thing on the slopes, walk out access to lifts but other than that its a little far from everything. Basically there is a restaurant and a simple bar at the hotel, food is expensive and average. Overall if you just want to ski its not a bad place if you want to experience some other restaurants...

Excellent hotel for skiers, although places fairly limited and expensive unless you take a bus to nearby towns. Bus services efficient and punctual. Staff and service staff incredibly helpful and efficient. Ski slopes and snow walking easily accessible from the hotel. If you are not skier it might be a little boring but do go for the snow walks.

Nice soft powder snow, good mix of routes, not really for beginners, good cosy restaurants in nearby town. Go see the snow monkey's nearby. Not as crowded as the US or France ski resorts. Ski in ski out resort. Budget around 200 per night.

Prince hotel west Accessibility: The express bus to the hotel takes 84 min from Nagano station and is tricky to find. The return trip to the station took about 2 hours. There is a free ski shuttle bus that runs through the Shiga Kogen area, but it runs infrequently (every 30-90 minutes depending on your pickup point and destination). Accommodations:...
