Onbara Kogen is located in Kagamino town in the northern region of Okayama Prefecture. This ski area has two connected areas called Panorama and Lakeside - each with a separate base area. The Lakeside area and two lifts will not be opening for the 2021-2022 season. That means that just the three pair lifts in the Panorama Area will be operating. In summer it is a popular camping area.

Okayama Prefecture is in the Chugoku region of western Japan. The ski areas in Okayama are in the northern mountainous region of the prefecture, close to the border with Tottori Prefecture. Okayama Prefecture also borders Hyogo Prefecture and Hiroshima Prefecture.
