Takanbo is a small ski hill located within the boundaries of Nanto city in the south-western region of Toyama Prefecture.

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.

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.
