Oueyama is located right by the side of Prefecture Road 9 in Miyazu city, in the northern region of Kyoto-fu.
In November 2016 it was announced that this ski hill will not be opening for the 2016-2017 season and will be closed. The official reasons are a lack of snowfall in the last few seasons and not enough people visiting... It will remain closed for the 2017-2018 season.
Kyoto-fu is a prefecture (though not named with '-ken' like most others) in the Kansai region of Honshu. Kyoto city is the famous capital, but Kyoto-fu actually stretches from a coastline on the Sea of Japan in the north-west to a border with Osaka and Nara-ken in the south-east. This long length means that the climate is quite different in the north and south.

As the 2018-2019 winter season approaches, we are gradually updating the information on these pages (for every ski resort in Japan).
Many ski resorts in Japan do not update their own information until late autumn. Our process of updating information will be ongoing right through until the end of November. In the meantime, ski resorts usually open and close around the same dates each year - so even if the planned season dates shown on this page are still from the 18-18 season, they can be used as a good indication of the upcoming season.

It is very important to us that the information presented on SnowJapan is correct and up-to-date. Checks and updates are made throughout the year. If you find information that you feel needs checking and updating, please let us know by contacting us. We appreciate your support.
