Nukabira Gensenkyo is located in the Nukabira region of Kamishiroho town in the central region of Hokkaido, close to the southern shores of Lake Nukabira. It is part of the Daisetsuzan National Park (Kokuritsu Koen). There are four lifts at this ski hill but recently only two (a quad and a pair lift, servicing the lower section of the resort) have been operating - and that is also the plan for the 2016-2017 season. This ski hill used to be known as Nukabira Onsen.

Hokkaido is the second largest island of Japan and also the largest and northernmost prefecture (though it is not usually referred to as a prefecture). It has coastlines on the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk and also the Pacific Ocean. Sapporo is the capital city of Hokkaido and was host to the 1972 Winter Olympics. Hokkaido is home to the largest number of ski hills in Japan. While the majority of them are very small, some of the larger ski and snowboard resorts in Hokkaido - mostly found in regions to the west and east of Sapporo - are amongst the most famous in Japan.
