Bansyu Tokura Snow Park is located to the south of Mt Hyono in Shiso City in the central northern region of Hyogo Prefecture. It has been operating since 1955.

This season Bansyu Tokura Snow Park will be closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The official reason appear so be that they are not able to find enough relevant staff for daily operations.

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.
