Located in Shibu Onsen, at the bottom of the Shiga Kogen Ski Resort, the Shibu Hotel offers traditional Japanese hospitality with modern comforts. A stay in a Japanese Ryokan is a must for everyone visiting Japan, and the Shibu Hotel makes it easy.
The bus from Shibu Onsen to Shiga Kogen is regular and takes about 35 minutes. The bus stop is only a few meters from the hotel entrance.
Unlike the Hotels up on the ski resort, Shibu Onsen has plenty to do outside of snow activities. Even just a stroll through the narrow paved lanes is an adventure. As is exploring the other hot springs in the area that only guests staying in local Ryokan can use. The Snow Monkey Park is also only a short taxi ride away (or ask the front desk, they may be bale to give you a ride)
From the moment you walk through the front door, you’ll feel like you are in a different world. The lobby is elegantly decorates and has a tea lounge.
Rooms are mostly Japanese Style, with futons on the tatami mats, while there are a couple of Western Style Rooms with Beds.
The hotel also features an excellent hot spring bath. There are both public baths and private use baths, ideal for those who are a little shy.
Meals are generally served in the Japanese Style Dining Room and are full Kaiseki Fare, with a lot of small dishes each designed with both appearance and taste in mind. The sheer variety of dishes means there is something to suit almost all tastes.
