resort map

Numajiri is located on the western slopes of Mt Adatara in Fukushima Prefecture. This ski area holds claim to a few records. It is one of the oldest currently operating ski areas in Japan (since 1915) and one of the first to open for night skiing (in 1927).

There has been scaling down in recent times, and for the 2021-2022 season, one quad and two lifts are operating.

The mascot characters for Numajiri are very friendly-looking squirrels who can often be found on the slopes. Their names are Numajirisu and Nuuji. They seem to be a couple.
