Iiyama Kita Hokuryu Onsen Family is a small ski hill located close to Nozawa Onsen, but is actually part of Iiyama city in the north-eastern region of Nagano Prefecture. There is one pair lift and a 'mini rope tow'. This ski hill offers generally family-friendly gentles slopes but there is a maximum 40 degree gradient on one course.

Nagano Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of the main island of Honshu. Most of the Northern Alps, Central Alps and Southern Alps are located within Nagano (along with neighbouring prefectures). Nagano has the second highest number of ski and snowboard resorts in all of Japan and they are spread around the whole prefecture. Nagano city and many of the major ski resorts are located in the northern region.
