Kuriyamacho is a small ski hill located just to the north of central Kuriyama town in the region to the east of Sapporo in Hokkaido.

This is one of those small ski hills that information is almost impossible to find. It seems that the one-person lift that used to operate here is now closed and that it is no longer open as a ski hill, as such. We will try to investigate further.

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.
