Yokomuki Onsen is a small ski hill located on the northern slopes of Mt Adatara in the central northern region of Fukushima Prefecture. It had been closed for a while but re-opened from the 2015 winter season. However, it does not appear to open every day - only on days when groups make reservations. Be sure to check before going!

Fukushima Prefecture is composed of three main regions - the Hamadori region to the east (including the Pacific Ocean coastline), the Nakadori region (the central area) and the Aizu region (the Western mountainous region). Many of the ski and snowboard resorts in the prefecture are found on or near Mt Bandai and Mt Adatara to the north of Lake Inawashiro. Most of the others can be found scattered across the western region of the Aizu region or to the south-west of Lake Inawashiro.
