Asama 2000 Park is located in the Takamine Kogen area of Komoro city, close to Mt Asama in Nagano Prefecture. The name - sort of - comes from the elevation of the resort, from 1880m to 2050m. At this height snow conditions are often good and there are some fine views of the surrounding mountains as well. Interestingly, the slopes of Asama 2000 Park are actually within Gunma Prefecture but the official address is in Komoro city. Access to the ski hill is only from the south as the roads to the north (Gunma) are blocked off in winter.
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.
Local bus services are available from Sakudaira Station (60 minutes) and Komoro Station (45 minutes).
