Mikata Snow Park is located in Kami town to the north of Mt Hachibuse in the north-western region of Hyogo Prefecture. While geographically close to the other ski resorts on the slopes of Mt Hachibuse, it is not connected and also access is only from the north via Route 482. First opened in 1983.
Mikata Snow Park has been closed since the 2019-2020 season due. Running costs of ageing facilities as well as a drop in the number of visitors appear to be the reason. Apparently staff were preparing for the season when they heard the decision to not open last season. There has been no news since then.
Hyogo Prefecture is located in the Kansai region of western Japan. It stretches the width of the country and has a coastline both on the Sea of Japan to the north and on the Seto Inland Sea to the south. Most of the ski and snowboard resorts in Hyogo Prefecture are located in the northern region of the Prefecture.
