Onbara Kogen is located in Kagamino town in the northern region of Okayama Prefecture. This ski hill has two connected areas called Panorama and Lakeside - each with a separate base area. In summer it is a popular camping area.

There will be no night time operations during the 2019-2020 season. The official reason for this change is 'ageing facilities'.

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