Hanawa is located close to the city centre of Kazuno in the north-eastern region of Akita Prefecture. There is a 10km cross-country course and a ski jump at Hanawa.

Akita Prefecture is located in the Tohoku region of northern Honshu. Akita faces the Sea of Japan in the west and is bordered by Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi and Yamagata prefectures from north to south. The region has cold winters and there are numerous ski hills located around the prefecture, though most of them are small scale with just one or two lifts.
