We stayed at the West wing of the Prince Hotel. As far as location goes, it's fairly good. There is a chair-lift just a stone's throw (literally) from the hotel. There is also a great Japanese restaurant right next to the hotel (also right near the chair-lift) and there aren't many food options in Shiga Kogen so it's nice to... More

Stayed for 6 nights in west wing Prince Hotel. Great rates after signing up to the free Prince hotel club. Best location from all Prince hotels. Closest to Ichinose. Only Prince wing with an onsen. Pricey to eat, dinner 4000 yen for buffet. We bought cereal in Nagano and had that for breakfast and ate on mountain for lunch. About... More

HOTEL We stayed at Prince East for 10 nights and loved the ski in/ski out. Rooms were clean, good size (East) but onsen is over at West wing. Lockers immed adjacent to exit with gondola 25m or chair lift 50m from exit. Reception staff not overly helpful but other staff incredibly kind and generous. Learn a smattering of conversational Japanese/get... More

There are a few restaurants mostly all serving Japanese style food, but some Western types too, such as eggs and french fries. You can get discount tickets for... More
