Tenzan Resort is located on the northern slopes of Mt Tenzan to the north west of central Saga city in Saga Prefecture. The region does not get much natural snow. Artificial snow is used on the slopes with any real snow being a bonus! It is about 1 hour from Fukuoka making it popular for people living in that northern region of Kyushu. Tenzan Resort first opened in 1989 and it is the most westerly ski hill in Japan.

Tenzan Resort is the only ski hill in Saga Prefecture and one of only a few on the island of Kyushu. Kyushu is the third largest island of Japan and most southwesterly of the four main islands.

2018-2019 SKI RESORT INFORMATION UPDATES
The 2018-2019 winter season is approaching! Hurray!

At the time of writing more than 60% of the ski hills in Japan have still not updated their own information for the upcoming season. We are continuing to manually update the information on these ski resort pages of SnowJapan but for the moment things are unavoidably a mix of old and new. 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.
