Itiogawa Seaside Valley is located in Itoigawa city, in the south-western region of Niigata Prefecture. The ski hill is close to the border with Nagano Prefecture and just to the north of the Otari and Hakuba region of that prefecture. The location also makes it convenient for people coming from the west in nearby Toyama Prefecture. This ski hill offers views of the Japan Sea and on a clear day Sado Island can be seen from the summit. Itoigawa Seaside Valley has been operating since 1980.

Niigata Prefecture is located in the central region of Honshu to the north of Tokyo and has a 250km long coastline facing the Sea of Japan. Convenient transportation links make Niigata very easy to get to from Tokyo and other surrounding regions. There are over 50 ski and snowboard resorts in Niigata Prefecture, ranging from small one-lift hills to some of the most well-known and popular ski resorts in Japan. While they are dotted around the mountains of the prefecture, most are concentrated in the southern regions - in particular the Yuzawa town and Minamiuonuma city area in the Chuetsu region and Myoko city in the Joetsu region.
