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. For the 2016-2017 season a few new tree run courses are available. Togari Onsen is located to the west of Nozawa Onsen, on the opposite side of the river and Route 117.

Two new tree run courses made their debut at Togari Onsen last season and this year (2018-2019 season) there is a new 'Togari Yukichari Snow Park' area where you can ride fat bikes on the snow.
