Hi Hiro,
Appreciate your help in this booking. It was a great experience and we really enjoyed it.
Is there any way we could be informed early on potential packages for 2025?

Warmest regards,


Konnichiwa Hiro san,
I will write a review for you here. Attached are some photos too.

My husband and I were at Shiga Kogen from 26th Feb to 4th Mar 2024. We booked our 7-night package at Prince Hotel West Building from Powderski Japan. Hiro-san, who was in charge of our booking, was helpful all the way and was very prompt in attending to my emails. I would say our early bird deal was a very good one as we got 3 free nights by booking 4 nights of stay. This package also comes with 7 daily breakfast and 3 days of ski pass for Yakebitai slopes.

The Prince Hotel West Building was big with a huge dining hall. Our double room was comfortable with enough room to sit and relax at the end of the day. The onsen was never crowded and breakfast came with lots of choices, with plenty to eat. The Ramen Corner restaurant which is just next to the hotel serves good, simple Japanese food at very reasonable prices. There is a Chinese restaurant right above it but we didn’t try.

It was our second time to Shiga Kogen. Staying at Prince Hotel was convenient as the Shiga Kogen shuttle bus comes regularly and on time, every time to bring us to Ichinose/Higashidate area and to Yokoteyama area. The other shuttle bus by Prince Hotel is available to go to Ichinose for more dining choices. The Nagaden bus runs from Nagano station all the way to Prince Hotel, so that is super convenient.

All in all, my husband and I had a great time. I would book with Powderski again next year. Am already looking forward to receiving next season’s early bird promotion from Hiro-san.

Good to know you are having your holiday in Japan now. Tanoshin de kudasai! Kiyotsukete!

Best of regards,
Gan Kwee Nah


Our family travelled to Shiga Kogen Japan in February 2024. The skiing conditions at Shiga Kogen were fantastic and the scenery was breathtaking! The runs at Yakebitaiyama were quite challenging (even the green runs), but we found some courses at Ichinose which were easier and more enjoyable for the whole family. Hiro at Powder Ski Japan helped us book accommodation at Shiga Kogen Prince Hotel West. The accommodation was clean and quiet. Hiro provided friendly, helpful and prompt service – we would happily use the services of Powder Ski Japan again!


Good morning Hiro

Just touching base to let you know our shiga trip went flawless, it was a fantastic trip – snow conditions could have been better but that’s skiing .

Hi Hiro

We had a great visit to Shigakogen. Snow was good, some very good groomers along with some japow made for an excellent ski holiday.
Prince Hotel was a very pleasant stay, excellent breakfast and ski in and ski out makes for a very relaxed experience.
If you could let us know when the earlybird deals become available for 2025 that would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for all your help
Kindest regards
Gary and Jo

Thanks for your email.
We all had a wonderful time on our Japan ski holiday and greatly appreciate your help with the organisation.
Shiga Kogen was superb and we would certainly consider returning at some stage in future.
We will be in touch prior to our next trip.

Best wishes


Hi Hiro

Thank you for checking in.
We had a great time, the resort was amazing and everyone very helpful.
It’s easy to access and we also liked how large the resort is that provides endless amounts of Snowboarding.

Thank you very much!


Konnichiwa Hiro,

Yes, we had a great time skiing with Yoshi yesterday. Thank you, that is fun to hear!

I absolutely hope we can come back again, and would for sure choose powderskijapan again. We were very happy with the powder tour yesterday. Yoshi was very nice and he brought us to some great spots for amazing deep powder skiing! We felt safe and had a lot of fun! We will definitely remember this day.
