Snow Park Oze Tokura is located in the mountains of the Oze region of Katashina village in Gunma Prefecture. It was the first of the resorts in the Oze and Numata region to open in 1962 and it is currently the most northerly of the resorts in the region. The resort was one of the early ones to welcome snowboarders to the slopes and the half-pipe remains a popular feature.

The region to the east of Minakami town and to the north east of Numata city in northern Gunma Prefecture is made up of Kawaba village and Katashina village. There are a number of ski and snowboard resorts dotted around the mountains of this region, all of which are accessed off the main Route 120 road from central Numata. This road is otherwise known as the Nihon Romantic Highway and continues through to Nikko in Tochigi Prefecture, though the prefecture border section of the road is closed during the winter months.

Gunma Prefecture is located in the north west area of Kanto region on the main island of Honshu and shares borders with Niigata Prefecture to the north and Nagano Prefecture to the west. There are over 20 ski and snowboard resorts in Gunma Prefecture and they are mainly concentrated in the northern regions of Minakami and Katashina and the western region of the Prefecture.
