Shiga Kogen

Shiga Kogen is a collection of 21 ski resorts strung out along the Shiga Plateau, making it one of Japan’s largest ski areas.

Located in the Joshinetsu Kogen National park about 20km northeast of Nagano, the Shiga Kogen ski area comprises a wide variety of terrain within 21 ski fields that ensures skiers and snowboarders alike are well catered for.

Many of the hotels in the area are located directly on the ski slopes offering perfect ski in/ski out access.

Not far from Shiga Kogen, on the western edges of the national park is the Jigokudani Wild Monkey Park. More than 200 wild long tailed monkeys live here and bathe in the natural hot spring water – a sight  not to be missed.

Nagano City’s Zenkoji temple and Matsushiro Kaizu castle for an interesting day trip away from skiing.
