resort map

Nihonmatsu Shiozawa is located to the east of Mt Adatara in Nihonmatsu city, Fukushima Prefecture and close to the Dake Onsen hot spring village area. It is the most easterly ski hill in Fukushima and not too far from Adatara Kogen, also in Nihonmatsu.

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.
