Rewild Ninja Snow Highland is located on the western side of Mt Azumaya in the northern region of Nagano Prefecture. Sugadaira Kogen is close by. This ski area used to be called Minenohara Kogen.

In April 2018, it looked like Minenohara Kogen was not going to open for the 2018-2019 season. There was encouraging news in August 2018 about a company taking it over with a chance of opening for 2018-2019... and eventually that did happen. Unfortunately, the powerful typhoon in October 2019 caused damage that needed fixing up and in mid-November 2019 the ski area regretfully announced that it would not be able to open for the 2019-2020 season.

This ski area was renamed to REWILD 'NINJA' SNOW HIGHLAND in 2020. Two lifts will be operating for the season.

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.
