    We had a great experience at the panorama view of Shiga Kogen. We have used the skylator and lift at the Tateyama panorama course which cost 1000 JPY. It was a pleasant experience.  more »

Where to stay in Yamanouchi-machi

As in most mountain resort towns in the country, the accommodations of Yamanouchi-machi lie spread out across the terrain, focusing on the main natural highlights. The hot springs close to Yudanaka train station have a fair number of the most frequented options, with new hotels and traditional ryokans with onsens, along with some more budget-friendly guesthouses. Look along the main highways leading up into the mountains to the east for ryokans and hotels heated by hot springs, as well as some ski resorts.
