Suishozan is a small ski hill located to the west of central Kazuno city in the northern region of Akita Prefecture. It is closed on certain days during the season (see below for details). Snowshoe tours are available at this ski hill.

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.
