Kujyu Shinrin Koen (also known as just Kujyu, Kujyu Snow World or Kujyu Forest Park) is located in Kokonoe town in Oita Prefecture, Kyushu. While it is by no means large compared to many ski resorts on Honshu and Hokkaido, it is the largest ski hill on Kyushu island with over 2km of courses available. Natural snow is helped along by snow making machines. There is one triple lift, two pair lifts and one 'E lift' (a covered moving walkway). It first opened in December 1996.
Kujyu is the only ski hill in Oita Prefecture and one of only a few on the island of Kyushu. Kyushu is the third largest island of Japan and most south-westerly of the four main islands.
Kujyu Shinrin Koen Snow Depth Statistics
Official snow depth numbers from the current season and previous season
At the time of writing more than 40% of the ski hills in Japan have still not updated their own information for the upcoming season - even some of the larger ones! We are continuing to manually check and update information within SnowJapan on a daily basis, but for the moment things remain a mix of new and old. In most cases ski resorts open and close around the same dates each season, so even if the planned season dates shown on this page are still from the 2017-2018 season, that is usually a good indication of what to expect this time round.

It is very important to us that the information presented on SnowJapan is correct and up-to-date. Checks and updates are made throughout the year. If you find information that you feel needs checking and updating, please let us know by contacting us. We appreciate your support.
