Until the 2015-2016 season, Kamihiruzen was a small ski hill located in Maniwa city in the northern region of Okayama Prefecture. It is just to the south east of Mt Daisen in Tottori Prefecture. Since the 2016-2017 season, it has been known as Hiruzen Kids Snow Park and calls itself 'one of the largest kids snow parks in western Japan'. There are no ski lifts, just a snow escalator and playing in the snow type activities.

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.
