Memuro is the name of a town located to the west of Obihiro city in the southern region of central Hokkaido. It is also the name of this small ski hill located to the south west of the main Memuro town centre.
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.
A free shuttle bus is available from the North Exit Obihiro Station and also in front of Nemuro Station.
