Yunomaru is located in Tomi city in the eastern region of Nagano Prefecture, right close by the border with Gunma Prefecture. At a high elevation this region often enjoys good snow conditions. In fact, it boasts of being 'the closest powder snow ski resort to Tokyo'. There are slopes on either side of the main base area and car parks at Yunomaru. Yunomaru dates back to 1928 with the main development happening in the early 60's.

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.
