    Amazing Views and Service

    We were looking for somewhere unique to stay while skiing Shiga Kogen and absolutely found it here. The couple that runs it works very hard to ensure that everything is perfect during your stay from picking you up at the bus stop (if needed), prepping AMAZING breakfasts and dinners and answering any questions you may have. Highly recommended!

    Relaxing truly enjoyable stay in Higashidate hotel

    This lovely hotel was built long time ago but it is well maintain, located in Happo Onsen right by the gondola. The staff are very polite and helpful. They sent us detailed instructions how to reach the hotel and provided the pick up transport from the bigger bus station. We stayed in their premium room with private Onsen, an amazing massage chair and great views on ski slopes and the surrounding mountains. To be honest, we had hard time to motivate ourselves to leave our room and go skiing :) The dining was great, our breakfasts and dinners were served in private dining area and we truly enjoyed the delicious meals and humbled and polite service. We hope to be back next year! THANK YOU!!!

    The facilities, room, food and location were all excellent. The hotel is right next to a ski lift and beginner slope. The staff and owner were extremely helpful and courteous. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Shiga Kogen.
