Tenzan Resort is located on the northern slopes of Mt Tenzan to the north west of central Saga city in Saga Prefecture. The region does not get much natural snow. Artificial snow is used on the slopes with any real snow being a bonus! It is about 1 hour from Fukuoka making it popular for people living in that northern region of Kyushu. Tenzan Resort first opened in 1989 and it is the most westerly ski hill in Japan.

Tenzan Resort is the only ski hill in Saga Prefecture and one of only a few on the island of Kyushu. Kyushu is the third largest island of Japan and most southwesterly of the four main islands.
