Over 300 people turned up for the last day of the official season at Shiga Kogen at Shibutoge yesterday (1st June), bringing to a close a long season. This season Yokoteyama was open for a whopping 185 days!

Shiga Kogen Ropeway;
Takamagahara line lift;
Higashiyama Gondola lift (open 1st July - 26th October);
