Manza Onsen is located deep in the mountains in the western region of Gunma Prefecture. The onsen hot springs close-by are very popular. Geographically, Manza Onsen is close to the southern part of Shiga Kogen and also the Kusatsu Onsen resort, but it is not actually connected to those resort areas and in winter the road connecting them is also closed. This means that Manza Onsen can only be reached from the south using the Manza Highway toll road during the ski season.

Gunma Prefecture is located in the north west area of Kanto region on the main island of Honshu and shares borders with Niigata Prefecture to the north and Nagano Prefecture to the west. There are over 20 ski and snowboard resorts in Gunma Prefecture and they are mainly concentrated in the northern regions of Minakami and Katashina and the western region of the Prefecture.
