Great Japanese style hotel. Extra futon mats in the room, so sleeping on a tatami floor was very comfortable. Clean and spacious rooms, hot showers, good food and cozy lounge area. The fireplace in the lounge area is a great place to gather with other guests, relax and meet new friends. Super close to ski areas, and free shuttle bus... More

Stayed with 46 other skiers from Tokyo (both US and Japanese Skiers). Hotel right on the slopes. You can put your skis on at the front door and ski down to the lifts. When your done for the day skiing, you can ski around from the back to the front door. Hotel is nice - convenience store, restaurant/bar, ski lockers... More

We are an Australian family of five (kids aged 6 - 13). Stayed Jan 2015. We had two rooms side by side. Room size is very large for Japan, and although each individual futon is thin, they can easily be layered - we had several extras in our room so could probably have had up to 5 each if we... More

Just like other first time travellers/skiers to Shiga Kogen, I spent a lot of time studying reviews and had to decide which town I should stay around Shiga Kogen area. I decided to stay in Ichinose, which is luckily a good choice for me and ideally situated in the middle of the mountain range of Shiga Kogen. Prince West Wing... More

6 friends stayed here in February. The welcome was warm, the rooms were very satisfactory - we had Japanese style rooms which all came with a toilet, but no shower. The prices are very reasonable. There was a ground floor onsen/ bath, which was usually not too busy, and was quite sufficient. The rooms were quite large, with good views... More

Arrived at 11:30 pm after a nightmare 50-hour (yes, 50) journey from Tokyo through Central Japan's worst snowstorms in 120 years, apparently. Staff were so welcoming that all troubles were immediately forgotten - they even opened up the convenience store on the ground floor so that we could get something to eat. And Yuichi had the best English of anyone... More

Just got back from Villa Ichinose in Shiga Kogen. We are a family of 4, and they gave us a 2 room Japanese style apartment. We were the only guests there during the week. It's a 3m walk to the slopes in spring although it looks like you can ski in and probably out in Winter. Visited the snow monkeys... More

Really loved Villa Ichinose. Terrific ambience amongst the visitors, who came from all parts of the world. Cannot understate how helpful and friendly Yuichi and his staff are. Likewise, can't understate how good the location is - ideal for the Nagano express bus and the slopes, and pretty much ski in, ski out (takes a little bit of self-propulsion to... More
