X-JAM Takaifuji is located on the eastern slopes of Mt Kosha in Yamanouchi town in the north-eastern region of Nagano Prefecture. X-JAM Takaifuji is one of the connected ski hills on the north, east and southern slopes of Mt Kosha that make up 'Mt Kosha'. A joint lift ticket is available. Until 2016-2017, Yomase Onsen was part of the group but it appears that is now not the case and so the joint ticket is now for X-JAM, Kita Shinshu Kijimadaira and Yamabiko no oka. (A fifth ski hill called Makinoiri Snow Park is located to the north-west of - and indirectly lift-connected with - X-JAM Takaifuji, but it is currently not operating). In the regions surrounding Mt Kosha, Myoko and Madarao Kogen are to the west, Nozawa Onsen is to the north and Shiga Kogen is to south west.

X-JAM Takafuji boasts one of the largest snow parks in Japan.

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.
