About

This is a ski resort located at the west shore of Lake Biwa with its slops on Mr. Uchimiyama and Mt. Horai. When you reach the mountain top station by the aerial ropeway, you will see the great view of Lake Biwa below. Eight ski slopes with full of variety are available during the ski season from the middle of December through early April. With the advent of spring, cherry blossoms, narcissus, rhododendron, and azalea are blooming followed by the season of fresh green leaves. Hiking, trekking, sledging on the ski slope and the zip -line adventure using wire ropes through a pulley are popular here, serving as a recreational site all year round.
