Togari Onsen is located on the south-eastern slopes of Hotokegamine in Iiyama city, in north-eastern region of Nagano Prefecture. Togari Onsen has two bases each with car parks and base facilities. The two base - Pegasus and Orion - are connected in the lower areas of the resort, and the upper areas are also connected with skiable courses. Togari Onsen is located to the west of Nozawa Onsen, on the opposite side of the river and Route 117. It is less busy than Nozawa Onsen and increasingly a place to visit on a day away from the more famous neighbour.

Two new tree run courses made their debut at Togari Onsen a few seasons ago and for the last few seasons a snow bike / snow strider park area has been introduced.

Nagano Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of the main island of Honshu. Most of the Northern Alps, Central Alps and Southern Alps are located within Nagano (along with neighbouring prefectures). Nagano has the second highest number of ski and snowboard resorts in all of Japan and they are spread around the whole prefecture. Nagano city and many of the major ski resorts are located in the northern region.
