A national eco-park certified by UNESCO

ShigaKôgen is not limited to skiing activities! Since 1981, within the framework of UNESCO's "Man and the Biosphere Programme", it has become an eco-national park . With a nature that moves through forty ponds and lakes, where Japanese macaques and Japanese saros live, Shiga Kogen is an ideal place for hikers. They can start through oak and beech vegetation and, as the altitude increases, enter an environment of conifers. The view of the Manchurian larches and birches that populate the plateau is particularly popular.
