Sun Meadows Kiyosato is located on the south-eastern slopes of Akadake in Hokuto city in Yamanashi Prefecture, close to the border with Nagano Prefecture. Artificial snow making machines are used at Sun Meadows to help compliment natural snow. There is a small official ungroomed course area near the top of the mountain.

The resort until fairly recently was 'skiers-only', but there are now no restrictions on snowboarding.

Sun Meadows Kiyosato first opened as a ski resort in 1990 as 'Kitz Meadows Oizumi Kiyosato' - there was apparently skiing being enjoyed there without any lifts or facilities before that date. The name of the resort was changed after an ownership change in 2002.
