Hakkai Sanroku is a small ski area with two pair lifts located in the northern area of Minamiuonuma city in Niigata Prefecture. There is a cross-country ski course by the base area of Hakkai Sanroku. This ski area is not to be mistaken with the nearby - and much larger and well-known - Muikamachi Hakkaisan ski area.

Minamiuonuma city and neighbouring Yuzawa town are home to over 20 individual ski areas, including some of the most well-known in Japan. With easy and quick access by train and road and a wide choice in a relatively compact area, this region is one of Japan's most popular ski destinations. The region usually enjoys very heavy and consistent snowfall each winter.
