Kunizakai Kogen Snow Park is a ski area located in Takashima city in the northern area of Shiga Prefecture, by the border with Fukui Prefecture.

Shiga Prefecture is part of the Kansai region in the western region of the main island of Honshu. Lake Biwa is the largest freshwater in Japan located at the centre of Shiga Prefecture. Most of the ski areas in Shiga Prefecture are in the region to the northwest of Lake Biwa. Shiga Prefecture should not be confused with the popular ‘Shiga Kogen’ ski areas in Nagano Prefecture. They are unrelated.
