Wakkanai Komadori is the most northerly ski resort on mainland Hokkaido, right by the tip of the island close to the coastline at Soya Bay. However, the small Kushukohan on the small nearby island of Rebun to the west just about beats Wakkanai Komadori to the 'most northerly ski hill in Japan' prize!

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.
