Snow Mobile In Shiga Kogen

Snow Mobile In Shiga Kogen

*Unfortunately due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 our partner company has decided not to operate snow mobiling activity in Shiga Kogen this winter season.
As a result, we are unable to provide this tour in 2020/2021. We apologies for any inconvenience and expect to be able to provide this tour again next winter 2021/2022*


Snow mobiles are often used in Shiga Kogen’s heavy-snow area for patrolling up in the mountains or for rescue purposes. The snow mobile is also used in a different, more entertaining way: for outdoor sport activities. The rides are available for single or tandem ride and for all ages. No driver’s license is required, so it is an easy, exciting activity where you get to enjoy racing through nature.


Riding the snow mobile can be done in Shiga Kogen at the foot of Yakebitai Mountain area.

Please note that this tour has a minimum age of 6 to participate. Children aged 6 to 12 are welcome to join but must ride tandem with an adult.



From late-December 2020 until March 2021, we are happy to offer our 1-Day Snow Monkeys & Snowmobiling in Shiga Kogen Tour. This tour combines a morning visit to the Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park, lunch, and after snowmobiling in Shiga Kogen.
