Nakayamatoge is located a short distance off the Nakayama Pass road about one hour drive to the south west of central Sapporo. In recent years Nakayamatoge has only opened in the early and late season periods, and is closed for most of the peak winter season months. In the past it was open throughout the winter. The planned season for the 2016-2017 season is from Saturday 12th November until Sunday 11th December 2016 and then from Saturday 1st April until Sunday 14th May 2017. From 14th May it may remain open for longer on weekends depending on snow conditions.

Hokkaido is the second largest island of Japan and also the largest and northernmost prefecture (though it is not usually referred to as a prefecture). It has coastlines on the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk and also the Pacific Ocean. Sapporo is the capital city of Hokkaido and was host to the 1972 Winter Olympics. Hokkaido is home to the largest number of ski hills in Japan. While the majority of them are very small, some of the larger ski and snowboard resorts in Hokkaido - mostly found in regions to the west and east of Sapporo - are amongst the most famous in Japan.
