Kagamiganaru is located in Kofu town to the south west of Yonago city in Tottori Prefecture. It is on the south-eastern slopes of Mt Daisen - a volcanic mountain with an elevation of over 1700m, making it the highest in the Chugoku region. The full and rather long name for this ski hill is 'Kyukamura Okudaisen Kagamiganaru', but it is often known just as Kagamiganaru. There are three other separate ski hills on the slopes of Mt Daisen - Daisen White Resort, Daisen Masumizu Kogen and Oku Daizen.

Tottori Prefecture is located in the Chugoku region of western Japan. There are a number of ski and snowboard resorts in the Tottori, with most gathered around Mt Daisen in the western region of the prefecture.
