The village of Ichinose is a very popular ski destination. Its access to ski facilities makes a favorite not only of local skiers but foreign tourists as well.  There are several hotels in the village but if you are on a tight budget, not “fussy”, and just want to enjoy a ski vacation without the trappings (or price) of fancy hotels, then Mount Shiga Hotel is a great choice.

Located right in the heart of Ichinose Shiga Kogen, Mount Shiga is a small, unpretentious hotel that delivers what you want; clean and comfortable accommodations with a fantastic location. It might feel a little old and run down but to skiers who just want to have fun and a place to have a good night sleep, this is perfect.  The hotel has a variety of rooms some of which are classic Japanese rooms which are quite small and comes with a toilet, and Classic western style rooms which are quite spacious. Some of the rooms face the snow banks or buildings.  Scout’s favorite is the combination room which is spacious and has two twin beds, living area, tatami mat area, a bathroom, a balcony and a superb view of the mountains.

The hotel has an onsite restaurant which serves both Japanese and western style breakfast and dinner which are quite delicious. If you want to relax, surf the net, or mingle with your friends, you can do so at the lobby lounge area where a small bar is located. The hotel lounge area is the only place in the hotel where there is wifi (and smokers).  The hotel has an onsen (bath facility) which features Jacuzzi jets which will help soothe aching muscles after a day of skiing. There is an onsite rental shop where you can rent ski equipment.

Mount Shiga Hotel is not for skiers who are used to high standards in their accommodations. It is a friendly down-to-earth hotel that provides the basics. If you are on a tight budget, this hotel will appeal to you. 

Who should stay here

The hotel will appeal to group of friends (specifically guys!) who are not fussy and are more concerned about having a great location.  It is also for people who want to enjoy a skiing adventure but are on a tight budget.
