Unlike some of the reviews we read on the interwebs (powder hounds etc), this place unfortunately isn't a TRUE ski-in/ski-out resort; it's a brief 3 minute stroll to the nearest mountain entry point. That being said, it was the only thing we were disappointed with for our stay. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful (their English wasn't great, but...

We have been coming back for the last 4 years. Everytime for a week and always in December. Always receive excellent service from all the staff. Staff are very knowledgable on touring and ski information. Onsen is immaculately cleaned and there is an outdoor onsen as well as 2 private onsens(free to use). Tabletennis room(and equipment) free to use. Massage...

Very good location for a short stay. Just on top of the slope from the hot spring monkey park. Provide ski rental, also right next to the shuttle bus to all ski slopes. Meal and hot spring is very nice. There is toilet inside the room but no shower.

Front desk staff are always cheerful and helpful to provide skiing information. We were too small to fit in the bathing suit provided on day one , so they changed to smaller suits the next day. One of my friends injured his knee, the manager took the problem personally. He called to the clinic to make sure the doctor's available,...

The staff were very helpful and provided us with all the information we needed for the bus and skiing options. They also helped us to make reservations for snowmobiling! Which I really recommend if anyone in your group doesn't want to ski the whole...

We spent a ski-weekend at Shirakabaso-Hotel and without exageration I would say that it was the perfect place to do so. Manager and staff speak English and were extremely helpful and friendly. They provided all details including train and bus plans how to get there and though we arrived after 10 pm a delicious supper was waiting for us. All...

I've been here for 9 days. If you want to ski whole shigakogen area, this place is great! Because main bus stop is just 10 seconds far and just middle area of shigakogen, you can go to any place of shigakogen and don't have to transfer! Hotel have clean, new remodeled interior room, and outdoor bath. Food is great and...

... those are the three reasons to stay at Hotel Shirakabaso in Shiga Kogen. The Hotel is located not only directly next to the Maruike bus stop (from where you can access all areas of Shiga Kogen) but also only 100m from the slopes of Hasuike/Maruike, one of the areas of the huge Shiga Kogen resort. Up until early April...

Dear Customer, Thank you for the detailed comments. Having read your reviews, we understand that the building is not stylish and needs a bit of renovation. But we are trying to do our best to keep offering friendly service. Although our English is limited, we are learning English by experience (slowly but surely). We hope you come to our ski...
