Oku Kannabe (often known as 'Okukan') is located in the Kannabe Kogen region of Toyooka in the northern part of Hyogo Prefecture. The Family Lift goes from the car park area to the resort base and opens 10 minutes earlier (and closes 10 minutes later) than the main ski lifts. For the 2019-2020 season, there will only be night time operations on Saturdays.

This resort is lift and course connected with Manba and they share a lift ticket. The other resort in the Kannabe Kogen area is Up Kannabe.
