Shiga Palace offers the best of both Japanese design and hospitality and of western comfort, featuring a great range of amenities and a plethora of both Japanese and western style rooms. The rooms themselves are spacious, open and traditionally designed, each featuring a tatami area and rice paper dividers as well as large televisions and heating. Guests can choose between Japanese or Western bedding, although all of the rooms have an undeniable Japanese design influence.

It is quite rare to find an accommodation with natural and true onsen hotspring bath in Shiga Kogen, but Shiga Palace Hotel features large onsens for men and for women, each of which doubles as bathing facilities for those whose rooms are equipped with ensuite bathrooms. The onsens are indoors, naturally heated and mineralized and offer a perfect place to unwind after a long day. There's also a cosy communal lounge space featuring an open fireplace that guests can make use of to catch up with and get to know one another.

Breakfast and dinner are served daily in the dining hall, featuring a plethora of buffet-style dishes of Japanese, western and Chinese influence. There's also a large convenience and souvenir store on the ground floor of the hotel. All of this together means that if you don't want to leave, you definitely don't have to - you'll have everything you could need right at your doorstep.

For those who do want to leave, though, Shiga Palace is located only a short walk both from some of the area's best ski destinations, from some beautiful landscape and from town. The hotel's staff are more than willing to help organise transport for you, but there's also public transport options as well as free parking. The hotel also offers great ski storage and drying facilities for guests, meaning skiers are free to enjoy their time on the slopes without worrying about anything else.

Standard Japanese Room

These spacious traditional rooms offer plenty of space for a small group, featuring fragrant tatami flooring throughout and lots of bright, natural light. There's a traditional dining space in the room, as well as some basic tea/coffee making facilities for guests to use. There's also a small lounge space with a handful of armchairs for guests to relax in. The Japanese rooms are available in two sizes - they all feature the same amenities, however one is simply larger and great for larger groups. Of course, the rooms are also equipped with a television and some basic storage space, too. Some of the Japanese rooms feature a full ensuite bathroom while some feature only a toilet and basin. The room is decorated with plenty of traditional décor as well, and offers a great culturally immersive experience as well as openness, airiness and tranquillity.

Onsen & Spa

Hotaru Onsen

Shiga Palace offers a plethora of large, indoor onsens ideal both for bathing and for relaxing, which is surprisingly quite rare to find in Shiga Kogen accommodations. The onsens are naturally heated and mineralized, situated in large tiled rooms with plenty of natural light. Great both for warming up after a long day in the snow and for treating aching muscles or sore skin, these onsens are open 24 hours a day and free for all guests to make use of. There’s separate men’s and women’s onsens, both of which feature separate washing facilities, and there are strict rules surrounding use of the onsens – people with tattoos are unfortunately not allowed to use them.
