Kaida Kogen Mia is located on the north eastern slopes of Mt Ontake in Kiso town, in the western region of Nagano Prefecture. With a top elevation at over 2100m, it gets very cold here and usually very good snow conditions can be enjoyed. This resort first opened in 1996. The name apparently comes from the Latin 'Memoria In Aeterna'.

Nagano Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of the main island of Honshu. Most of the Northern Alps, Central Alps and Southern Alps are located within Nagano (along with neighbouring prefectures). Nagano has the second highest number of ski and snowboard resorts in all of Japan and they are spread around the whole prefecture. Nagano city and many of the major ski resorts are located in the northern region.
