Yogo Kogen Resort Yap is located in the northern part of Nagahama City, almost right on the border with the southern region of Fukui Prefecture. It is the most northerly ski hill in Shiga Prefecture. While the main road Route 365 continues north into Fukui Prefecture, that section of road is closed in the winter months blocking off direct access from that direction.

Shiga Prefecture is part of the Kansai region in the western region of the main island of Honshu. Lake Biwa is the largest freshwater in Japan located at the centre of Shiga Prefecture. Most of the ski hills in Shiga Prefecture are found in the region to the north west of Lake Biwa. Be sure not to confuse Shiga Prefecture with the popular ‘Shiga Kogen’ resort region of Nagano Prefecture – they are un-related.
