Yomase Onsen is located on the south-eastern slopes of Mt Kosha in Yamanouchi town, in the north-eastern region of Nagano Prefecture. In recent years it was one of the connected ski hills on the north, east and southern slopes of Mt Kosha that make up 'Mt Kosha’ and a lift ticket was available. However, it appears that it is no longer part of the group and not included in the joint lift tickets.
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. At the time of writing (early December 2016) it is unclear if Yomase Onsen will actually open for the 2016-2017 season. We will update this when more information is available. In the meantime, information on this page is from the 2015-2016 season.
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.
