The staff is extremely helpful, speaks proficient English and run a well organized hotel. The traditional Japanese rooms are relatively spacious and comfortable. The front desk can hold your passports and valuables if you like.
We skied throughuot Shiga Kogen and took a trip to the Monkey Park down the mountain. Hasuike and the rest of Shiga Kogen are quiet mid-week and the meals can be quite costly. Overall, the Shiga Kogen area and the Hotel Shirakabaso are high marks in my book.
