Tadami is a small local ski hill located in the far west region of Fukushima Prefecture, close to the border with Niigata Prefecture. The road that goes through to Niigata Prefecture is closed during the winter months, though the Tadami-sen train line keeps access from Niigata open through the year.
Fukushima Prefecture is composed of three main regions - the Hamadori region to the east (including the Pacific Ocean coastline), the Nakadori region (the central area) and the Aizu region (the Western mountainous region). Many of the ski and snowboard resorts in the prefecture are found on or near Mt Bandai and Mt Adatara to the north of Lake Inawashiro. Most of the others can be found scattered across the western region of the Aizu region or to the south-west of Lake Inawashiro.
There is an area for sledging and other snow activities for children.
There are no special snow park facilities.

As of Sunday 9th December, we still need to update the information for about 50 ski hills around Japan. They are mostly very small ones and the information can be very hard to find. We are working to get them all updated as quickly as possible... hopefully within the next week!
