Value
Taken as a whole, the Shiga Kogen region is quite possibly the largest ski and snowboard resort area in the world. The area is located to the northeast of Nagano City, about 40 minutes out. The Shiga Kogen Prince Hotel is located at the base of the excellent Yakebitaiyama resort and has a variety of different plans and packages for skiers of all levels. The most popular is the "All-in-1 Pack," which includes breakfast and a one-day lift ticket. The resort hotel has a total of 690 comfortable rooms in three separate wings (100 in the East Wing, 240 in the South Wing and 350 in the West Wing). All provide easy access to the lifts and slopes.

This is probably the worst hotel in Japan. Staff is not sufficiently trained and sometimes simply rude. Rooms are ridiculously small, even for Japanese standards. Beds are very poor quality and very small too. Breakfast is awful! I regret staying here. Even a hostel in...More

A good hotel for a group of travellers on a ski holiday, but the facilities are starting to show their age. Make sure to book with a meal plan or included breakfasts as the restaurant is expensive. There are a few food options within walking...More

In my experience, wi-if was available in the room, but there was zero data flow. It worked well in the dining room and lobby area.

I was there two weeks ago. There is no other dining option around the Prince, and I thought the meals were bad and expensive - so I understand why you ask. As you suspect you need to go to Ichinose. You need to order a taxi... More
