Unazuki Snow Park is a very small small ski hill located close to the centre of the Unazuki Onsen area of Kurobe city in the north-eastern region of Toyama Prefecture, close to the border with Niigata and Nagano Prefectures. It originally opened in 1956. A lift (free to use) takes visitors from the onsen town area to the slopes and back.

Toyama Prefecture is in the Hokuriku region of central Japan, facing the Sea of Japan. Toyama is bordered by Ishikawa to the west, Gifu to the south and Nagano and Niigata to the east. The northern region is all Sea of Japan coastline. While the eastern region of Toyama along the border with Nagano Prefecture is home to impressive North Alps mountains, most of the mostly small ski hills within Toyama are actually located in the western region around Nanto.
