Hachimantai Resort Shimokura is located in Hachimantai city in the north-western region of Iwate Prefecture. It is close to Hachimantai Resort Panorama - the runs are not actually physically connected, but the ski areas share a lift ticket and there is a free shuttle bus service between the two. The base areas are about 2km apart.

There is a 250m long 'tree run area' that is left ungroomed in the top area of the ski area. Registration at the Center Lodge is required if you want to enter this area. Backcountry training, tours and 'powder tours' are available.

Iwate Prefecture is located in the Tohoku region of the main island of Honshu. Morioka is the capital city. Most of the ski and snowboard hills in Iwate Prefecture are located in the western mountainous regions, near to the border with Akita Prefecture. Aomori Prefecture is to the north and Miyagi Prefecture is to the south of Iwate.
