Shiga Kogen, Yamanouchi-machi

4.3
#1 of 14 in Outdoors in Yamanouchi-machi
Hit the slopes at Shiga Kogen, a vast, snow-covered area consisting of 21 connected ski resorts that all accept the same lift pass. Snow sports enthusiasts and beginners alike can be certain of the professional standard of the ski area, which hosted various competitions during the 1998 Winter Olympics. Its rich variety of trails, downhills, and jumps spreads across an enormous 600 ha (1,483 ac) of terrain. The surrounding national park offers plenty of off-slope entertainment, with hot springs and a monkey sanctuary, where snow monkeys bathe in the hot springs.

  • One of the biggest ski resorts in Japan with lots of venues for different levels and restaurants. One must make several trips before fully enjoy it all.
  • View is awesome, but it is not very friendly for snowboarders when moving from mountains to mountains. Not a lot of buses moving from mountains to mountains either.
  • the view was beautiful plus making memories with my love ❤️
  • awesome place for snowboarding
  • Another is the snow? Always leaves, 10 are always at their best. Very quickly, in the winter. Shiga-Kusatsu toll road will be closed along with the snow. Around the Golden run Shibu pass road, opened. Snow corridor is one of the attractions. Tsu Shirane volcano eruption of grass is beyond the snow corridor. Shiga-Kusatsu routes will be closed and admission regulations area came up to 1 km, originally, toxic gases to areas where you may, on the homepage of the administrative check on the route you must. Be sure and Yuda in the Nagano Prefecture side rises from the hot springs route. The route goes from high mountain, Akiyama Onsen also in Shiga Kogen. Yuda during non-Olympic Road is closed during the winter.
