We dropped in only for lunch - which was delicious. The hotel has lovely views and English-speaking staff. The lobby is wonderful and so is the food. Recommended. It's on the "far western end" of the Shiga Kogen map - but is worth the trip from from more central areas such as Ichinose, and the skiing nearby is fabulous.

Just completing a 12 night stay at the Oku Shigakogan hotel, and it has been a very relaxing and comfortable stay. I stayed here 4 years ago and it was indeed needing some renovation and innovation. With the arrival of new owners, the GM Fred and his team are transforming this hotel into a true destination hotel. The level of... More

Our family of 4 (children aged 10 & 11 years) have just finished an 8 night stay at the Okushiga Kogen Hotel. We stayed in a 'new annexe' triple room (3 beds and foldaway). The hotel is non-smoking which was very important to us, the rooms big, warm and clean and the beds very comfortable. The inviting lounge area with... More

Stayed five nights at the okushiga Kogen Hotel The food in both the French and the Japanese restaurants was fantastic. The skiing was suitable for both beginners and more experienced people with easy access to the whole of the Shiga Kogen resort was great. We really enjoyed or time with you and the staff were friendly and helpful.

I just spent a week skiing at okushiga kogen and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It is not exactly the most modern and sophisticated hotel which was what made it unique for me. It has 74 rooms and you will never feel that the hotel is full even when its full so that's a great thing. The chair lifts to the... More

The service from all staff is impeccable. The location could not be better. The evening meals is of the highest standard (and volume). The obvious pride that the staff takes in their hotel shines through the entire hotel services from the General manager down. In fact I have never seen the GM of any hotel in the world do such...

Gave it a try cause I heard that this place had a changed of owner and management, supposed to have a more global atmosphere (I don't speak much Japanese). To my surprised, I was welcomed by a "white" manager, very friendly and energetic, never seen a hotel manager that does "magic show" as a hobby. If you ever come here,... More

Stayed at hotel for 6 nights in Dec 2015. Excellent service from a great team led by the manager Fred. Food too was of a very high standard at both the French and Japanese restaurant. The shortfall is the metal room doors make a loud noise when closing.

There are positives and negatives (just like any place). The positives outweigh the negatives plenty here. My wife and I went during the Chinese New Year break. The location is great if you are a skier - the lifts are right there and there was a lot of space/few people on the slopes (Okushiga is skiers only, no boarders, so... More
