Iohzan is a small ski hill located in Kanazawa in Ishikawa Prefecture. It is actually the only ski hill located within the boundaries of Kanazawa city and about 13km to the south east of central station area of the city. The official formal name of the resort is Kanazawa Shiei Iohzan Ski-jo.

Ishikawa Prefecture is in the Chubu region of central Japan. Most of the ski hills in Ishikawa Prefecture are in and around Hakusan, Komatsu and the capital city of Kanazawa city. With the opening of the Hokuriku Shinkansen line to Kanazawa since spring 2015, the region has become more accessible to more people.
