Kyowa is located in Daisen city, to the east of Akita city in Akita Prefecture. The courses are accessed via two pair lifts (458m and 868m in length). A joint season ticket with the Taiheizan Opus is available.

Akita Prefecture is located in the Tohoku region of northern Honshu. Akita faces the Sea of Japan in the west and is bordered by Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi and Yamagata prefectures from north to south. The region has cold winters and there are numerous ski hills located around the prefecture, though most of them are small scale with just one or two lifts.
