About Hotel Ichinose

Hotel Ichinose is a family owned and operated hotel based in the middle of Shiga Kogen resort and gives you a true ski in and ski out experience. You are welcomed at the main reception by one of the team and the owner Seiichi is always around with a huge smile on his face to help you.


The larger than normal Japanese style rooms come with tatami floors and traditional futon beds with a separate toilet and wash basin. All rooms have a flat screen TV, small fridge, kettle and safe. Your room also has a traditional Japanese wardrobe wear (yukata), which is not mandatory to wear at this hotel, although it is definitely comfortable attire after a day on the slopes.

Hotel Ichinose has two western style rooms with their own bathrooms at an extra cost and come on a first come basis.


Hotel Ichinose has an indoor Japanese bathhouse (onsen) where all your bathing is conducted and is a great way to soothe any aching joints or muscles after a day on the slope.

There is free Wi-Fi on the 1st and 2nd floor, drink vending machines, laundry services, ski drying room and an expansive in-house convenience store for those midnight snacks.


The hotel has two restaurants where breakfasts and dinners are served and Restaurant Rocky doubles as a lunch eatery for resort guests during the day.

Breakfasts are Japanese/Western buffet style and dinners are traditional Japanese with some Western dishes.

There are a number of restaurants nearby and the Teppa Room bar is an excellent place to chill out and enjoy locally brewed ale.

Other Important Information

Terrain & SafetyThe rules when skiing at resorts in Japan can be a lot different to what is experienced in Western resorts around the world. At a high percentage of the resorts in Japan, trail skiing is the norm and anything off the main marked trails is deemed "out-of-bounds". The out of bounds is not patrolled so as far as the resort is concerned; skiing there is at your own risk. The out of bounds skiing provided by ESA is deemed (what has been termed in Japan by westerners) “slack country” or “side country”. Many times these out of bounds areas are in between two marked courses so at the bottom of the run you meet up on a marked course to take you back to the lifts, hence the term “slack country”.

Some resorts are more lenient with "out-of-bounds" skiing and others very strict. Some will have signs that state "ski at your own risk" where others may not. JPCT consider everything that is not on a marked trail to be out of bounds. 

If you wish to experience the "out-of-bounds" (skiing off any of the marked trails) areas:
  1. You must carry the essential avalanche safety equipment (beacon, shovel, probe & backpack to carry such gear)
  2. You must be able to ski at a sufficient ability / level to manage the conditions on the day for any out-of-bounds runs
  3. You will need to undertake an safety instruction session on the use of your avalanche equipment (even if you already know how to use it)
  4. You will be required to sign a release of liability agreement prior to undertaking any out-of-bounds skiing with ESA
The JPCT team have the following credentials:
  • knowledge and experience at skiing the various resorts they visit in the Nagano and Niigata areas
  • accreditation and different combinations of instructors, ski patrol, avalanche awareness and first aid
  • ski instructors have a minimum of level 2 NZIAS certification
Exclusion of Liability & RiskAdventure sports activities involve many risks, dangers and hazards. These risks and hazards are outlined in the JPCT release of liability, waiver of claims, assumptions of risks and indemnity agreement which all participants are required to read and sign before participating in adventure sports activities. This agreement will affect your legal rights should you be involved in an accident.
