Relax & Unwind in the Hotel’s Onsen
Japan’s epic powder and welcoming ski resorts are known throughout the world, and with that have established Nagano as one of Asia’s premier snow sports destinations. People fall in love with Japanese resorts for many reasons and one big factor – for many people, just as attractive as the snow, friendly reception and great food – are the ‘onsen’ (natural hot springs) dotted throughout the country.
Sunny Shiga is one of the few hotels in Shiga Kogen to have an in-house, authentic onsen. Open 24 hours a day, retreating to the onsen after a long day on the mountain, after your evening meal and drinks, or on your designated rest day to aid recovery, is hugely enjoyable and guaranteed to stand-out as one of the best aspects of your visit to the resort.
A nearby source supplies the hotel with a limitless flow of naturally hot, thermal water. Known as ‘onsen’, hot springs play an important role in Japanese culture and daily life. Regarded as places of refuge, healing and relaxation, having access to an onsen in your hotel is highly desirable, and never more so than when skiing and snowboarding.
At the end of each day, Hotel Sunny Shiga’s onsen – segregated for use by men and women – will be waiting for you. After a long day on the mountain, you’ll quickly become addicted to this simple, indulgent pleasure.
The onsen is open 24 hours a day and includes a sauna for use by all hotel guests.
