There are two separate areas of Hidaka town - one on the coast and one is further inland to the north east. Hidaka Kokusai is a small ski hill located in the western region of the northern area of the town. A cross country course next to the ski hill that usually opens from January. The pretty light illuminations during night operations are popular.

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.
