If you look closely you'll see proof of that new gondola being built. I have adjusted the contrasts etc in the image

Yes, it was the visible signs of construction of the high-speed gondola and underground shinkansen station that gave it away.

Hmmm. Without going through all the maps, I don't know that one either.

Interesting looking shape to the place.

Tengendai it is!

 

It is of course in Yamagata, snowjunky, though on the border with Fukushima, just over the other side of the mountain from Grandeco.

 

Check your satellite view again, Sanjo. I clipped out the access road and ropeway, and consequently the SJ tag as well, leaving only the ski area itself.

 

And take it away, Oblong!
