Haginoyama Shimin is located to the south west of Iwamizawa city centre in Hokkaido. This fairly small ski hill has generally gentle but a wide open area. Wide enough for a road sign to boast that it offers 'the widest ski slopes in Japan'. People visit from Iwamizawa as well as the Ebetsu and Sapporo areas.

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.
