Aizu Kogen Nango is located in Minami Aizu town in the south-western Aizu region of Fukushima Prefecture. This resort welcomed snowboarders early on when most other ski resorts in Japan remained skiers-only and it remains a popular place for snowboarding and has numerous snow parks and half pipes.

Fukushima Prefecture is composed of three main regions - the Hamadori region to the east (including the Pacific Ocean coastline), the Nakadori region (the central area) and the Aizu region (the Western mountainous region). Many of the ski and snowboard resorts in the prefecture are found on or near Mt Bandai and Mt Adatara to the north of Lake Inawashiro. Most of the others can be found scattered across the western region of the Aizu region or to the south-west of Lake Inawashiro.
