Togari Onsen is on the south-eastern slopes of Hotokegamine in Iiyama city, in the north-eastern region of Nagano Prefecture. Togari Onsen traditionally has two bases, each with car parks and base facilities. The two bases were connected both in the lower areas, and the upper areas 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.

A few tree run courses made their debut at Togari Onsen in recent years, and for the last few seasons, a snow bike / snow strider park area has been introduced. For 2021-2022 the lower part of the northern area is being used for various snow activities and is called 'Snow Vacance Mura'. The ski lift in that area is not operating.
