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
