Kurobushi Kogen Snow Park Jangle Jungle - often known as just 'Jungle' - is located to the north east of Yamagata City in the eastern region of Yamagata Prefecture. The slopes are north facing with good views Mt Kurobushi. It is located about twenty minutes from the central area of Higashine city and is also about an hour from Sendai city.

Yamagata Prefecture is located in the south-west part of Tohoku with the west coast facing the Sea of Japan. The boundaries of Yamagata Prefecture are all mountainous with Niigata Prefecture and Fukushima Prefecture to the south, Akita Prefecture to the north and Miyagi Prefecture to the east. The ski and snowboard ski hills in Yamagata range from very small one-lift local hills to the biggest individual ski resort in Japan (Zao Onsen) and are spread across the Prefecture.
