IOX-AROSA is located on the eastern slopes of Mt Iouzen in Nanto city in the western region of Toyama Prefecture. The 1,650m Gondola goes from base to the top of the ski area and there are five other pair lifts.

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.
