Mt Jeans Ski Resort Nasu is located in Nasu town, to the west of Shirakawa city in the northern region of Tochigi Prefecture. The name of this ski hill apparently comes from the words 'Joyful, Exciting, Adventure, Nature, Sporting'. Within reach of Tokyo it is a popular day-trip resort for people based in the capital city region. It has been operating since 1994. Nasu Onsen Family is quite close by. The 'Jeans' name comes from the words 'Joyful - Exciting - Adventure - Nature - Sporting'.

Tochigi Prefecture is located to the north of Tokyo and is perhaps best known for the Nikko and the famous Toshogu Shrine, Lake Chuzenji, Kegon Falls, the Oku Nikko area and also the mountainous region in the north that includes Mt Takahara and Mt Nasu.
