Kurohime Kogen Snow Park is located in on the eastern slopes of Mt Kurohime in Shinano town, Nagano Prefecture. Kurohime is very close to the Nagano border with Niigata Prefecture and the various ski and onsen resort areas in the Myoko region (and generally not as busy as those!). Fine views of Lake Nojiri, Mt Madarao and Myoko to the north can be enjoyed on a clear day.

The resort has a large Kids Park area that is apparently the size of 40 Tokyo Domes! There are also a few Park areas for adults. There is also a cross country course.

Myoko is the name of a city in Niigata Prefecture, but it is also the name that many people associate with a number of ski and snowboard resorts located on and around the beautiful Mt Myoko in the south west region of the city. The region famously often receives some of the heaviest snowfalls in Japan. Myoko is located fairly close to a number of other popular ski and snowboard resort areas in neighbouring Nagano Prefecture including Madarao Kogen, Nozawa Onsen and Shiga Kogen (regional map). It is also a popular onsen hot springs and nature resort all year round and in recent years there has been a large increase in the number of visitors from overseas.

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.
