Dear our valued customers,

The Olympic Games & Paralympics in Tokyo have been over in peace and safety, but meanwhile, the COVID-19 has been prevailing throughout Japan as well as the world.  Vaccination campaigns have been run vigorously in many countries, and the number of vaccinees has been increasing steadily and sharply... 

And it is likely that the arrival of overseas visitors to Japan will gradually increase as the number of vaccinated people will increase.

Under such situation we now expect some of our overseas guests may start planning for the 2021-22 vacation in Shiga Kogen, as we have recently received inquiries from several regular visitors.  So, please let us start to accept bookings for the coming season.    

Villa Alpen continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely, and has developed the “safety commitment” as a new protocols for hygiene and disinfection applied to our place with your wellbeing in mind.  We believe this protocol will enable us to provide our guests with safe and clean environment to enjoy their stay with us.

Please note that our usual cancellation policy will not apply in the “unfortunate” case when your flight to Japan should be cancelled.  Please feel free to make your reservation for your stay at Villa Alpen during the coming holiday season.

Last but not least, please allow us to dwindle the number of our rooms available for our guests in accordance with our protocols based on the official policies enforced by the national and local governments.          

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
