Engaru Rock Valley is located close to the central area of Engaru town in the north eastern region of Hokkaido. The courses are serviced by one pair lift and one simple 'bambi lift'.

A brand new 'michi-no-eki' (roadside rest area) has opened by the base and there is direct access from the 2nd Floor of that facility to the base of the ski hill.

Hokkaido is the second largest island of Japan and also the largest and northernmost prefecture (though it is not usually referred to as a prefecture). It has coastlines on the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk and also the Pacific Ocean. Sapporo is the capital city of Hokkaido and was host to the 1972 Winter Olympics. Hokkaido is home to the largest number of ski hills in Japan. While the majority of them are very small, some of the larger ski and snowboard resorts in Hokkaido - mostly found in regions to the west and east of Sapporo - are amongst the most famous in Japan.
