Iizuna Kogen is located on the southern slopes of Mt Iizuna, to the north of Nagano city in the northern region of Nagano Prefecture. The freestyle ski events of the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics were held here. The bobsleigh and luge events of the Olympics were held at the 'Spiral' facility, about 3km to the south-east of Iizuna Kogen. The Iizuna Resort ski hill is about 4km away and the resorts in Myoko (Niigata Prefecture) are to the north.

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.

As the 2018-2019 winter season approaches, we will gradually be updating the information for every ski resort in Japan.

Many ski resorts in Japan do not update their own information until the autumn months and so our process of updating information will be ongoing until November.

Resorts usually open and close around the same time each season - if the 2017-2018 planned season dates are still displayed on this page, they can be used as a good indication of the season length.
