Awasuno is located to the south-east of Toyama city in Toyama Prefecture. Awasuno is not lift or course connected to the nearby Tateyama Sanroku. There used to be a joint lift ticket but from last season that is no longer available. There were some doubts about whether Awasuno might be able to open for the 2020-2021 season... the good news is that with the help of a crowd funding project, it will be opening.

There is a cross-country course by the base area. Awasuno first opened in 1960.

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.
