Akita Hachimantai is a small ski hill located on the north-western slopes of Mt Hachimantai in Kazuno city, in the north-eastern region of Akita Prefecture. The two 1km+ courses are serviced by one pair lift at this ski hill.

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.
