Sayama is located in Tokorozawa city in Saitama Prefecture. It is a 'semi-indoor' area using artificial snow only - it doesn't usually snow much in Saitama! A fair few people living in the capital use this facility for training. Sayama is covered and is located next to the Seibu Dome on one side with an open-air baseball field on the other side.It first opened in 1959.

Sayama was closed 2019-2020 winter season, but it re-opens for the 2020-2021 winter season on Thursday 12th November 2020. The lift has been replaced by a 'snow escalator' in two sections with a mid-alight point. There is also a new separate kids slope area for sledding and playing in the snow and new pricing of tickets. On Fridays and weekends during the main season it is usually open through the night until 6:00am the following morning.
