Lovely staff who did everything they could for us even though we had a huge language barrier.
Every staff in the hotel are super duper helpful and friendly! We all had a superb and enjoyable time in the hotel!!! Thank you so much for the great hospitality!!!
Well worn but comfortable lodge. Some may find facility not modern but it actually has its own atmosphere which is centred around the warmth of the family and staff that run villa alpen.
Great place to stay for skiing. Just on the slopes. Feels like a family hotel. Basic but comfortable.

Good location near bus station and ski lift. Average breakfast and dinner
Staff was super friendly. They took us to the ski gear rental shop and back again to return the stuff. Their English was ok, enough to explain what buses to take, recommend pistes, etc. We even received a small gift when leaving. I recommend reserving the 3 meal course.
Can you believe that many people hate winter? They've obviously never had a blue bird day at Shiga Kogen Ski Area.
Found in the well-known city of Nagano, it is visited and enjoyed by travelers from across the globe.
For both ease and affordability, book a few nights at the Nozaru Hostel, a short trip of 3 miles.
If you love to indulge in the finer things in life, you'll be happy to know that there are a few upscale hotels in the general area. You won't regret staying at the Aburaya Tosen. The Shibu Hotel is another fine option.
There’s nothing better than resting those weary feet and treating yourself to a snack and a coffee after a big day of sightseeing. When you've finished at Shiga Kogen Ski Area, head to 志賀グリーンホテル (志賀高原サンバレー, 7148 Hirao, Yamanouchi), which is only 0.1 miles away. If you're after something more substantial, walk over to 志賀高原山の駅 (7148 Hirao, Yamanouchi) for a full meal.
