Matsunoyama Onsen is located in Tokamachi city in Niigata Prefecture. It is about 1km to the south of the popular Matsunoyama Onsen hot spring town area in a fairly secluded region. It is often not busy at all, but this region is known for (usually) enjoying very heavy snowfall.

Niigata Prefecture is located in the central region of Honshu to the north of Tokyo and has a 250km long coastline facing the Sea of Japan. Convenient transportation links make Niigata very easy to get to from Tokyo and other surrounding regions. There are over 50 ski and snowboard resorts in Niigata Prefecture, ranging from small one-lift hills to some of the most well-known and popular ski resorts in Japan. While they are dotted around the mountains of the prefecture, most are concentrated in the southern regions - in particular the Yuzawa town and Minamiuonuma city area in the Chuetsu region and Myoko city in the Joetsu region.
