We stayed at Chalet SHiga at the very start of the season. We may have been the first guests in. Snow was not great but that has been the case for this season across Japan. Nevertheless, Ichinose Family, takamagahara and Yakebitaiyama slopes were open, the first being walking distance from Chalet Shiga and the other two a very short bus... More

We booked two rooms at chalet shiga, one a western and the other a Japanese western. Both were a good size with single western beds and private bathroom. The rooms were not luxurious but very functional, with the Japanese western having a lovely japanese sitting area, the western a table and chairs. Internet in the lobby was faster than most... More

This was our second visit to Shiga Kogen, and stayed at Ichinose both times. This area is very central, and is the closest area to a village type feel. Good restaurants near by, and the food in the hotel was very good. We had a Japanese style room, overlooking the Ichinose Diamond area. Views were great, and it was interesting... More

Stayed at Chalet Shiga for the third time in last 10 years recently with my wife and some friends. Chalet Shiga is very central in the Shiga-Kogen resort, located in the Inchinose area with good access to the slopes, literally on the other side of the road. Mr Sato and team are very friendly and helpful. Rooms ( Japanese style... More

This chalet is more traditional style with enough western comforts. Wi-fi only in the lobby which was fine. Great onsen after a big day out skiing and we do love the skiing here. Not crowded and plenty of opportunity to make fresh tracks. Less crowded than Hakuba for example and very few non-Japenese in this resort. There is no night... More

This turned out to be a great spot to stay with my kids. We chose shiga as there is no nightlife as such, so no drunken Australians like many other Japanese ski resorts. ( I am an Aussie so think I can say this) The bathhouse (onsen type) is great and quite traditional. We had a meal package and it... More

Like many of the hotels in Shiga Kogen , this one is family owned and run, and the building has been there since the 1960's. Whilst this large, spread- out resort has hundreds of lodges, most of them are not marketed to western guests, most likely because no-one speaks any English. At Chalet Shiga, Mr Sato speaks reasonable English which... More

Chalet Shiga was a comfortable place to stay in what seems to be a purpose built ski village/resort. The rooms were spacious and ours had a nice view of the adjacent slopes. Whilst the skiing here was really good the lack of restaurants and any night life meant our week long stay did get a little boring

“Ask for a room at the front- great views of the slopes.”

“Rooms out the front have the views, although the snow clearing machinery that starts around 430-5 am can be a little noisy.”
