Hyperbowl Tohachi is located in Yabu city in the north-western region of Hyogo Prefecture, on the eastern slopes of Mt Hachibuse. It is connected with the Sky Valley resort and they share a common lift ticket.

'Kerohachi' is the gnarly mascot character of Hyperbowl Tohachi and can often be found pounding the slopes, apparently preferring snowscoot over skis or board. Oh yes, he (?) is a frog.

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.
