Megahira Onsen Megahira (often just known as Megahira) is located in Hatsukaichi city to the north-west of Hiroshima city in the western region of Hiroshima Prefecture. It is less than two kilometres from the Yoshiwa exit on the Chugoku Expressway. Along with Mominoki Shinrin Koen it is one of the closest ski hills to central Hiroshima city. 2019-2020 is the 22nd anniversary for this ski hill.

Penguin alert! Some cute penguins will be visiting Megahira on 1st, 2nd, 22nd and 23rd February 2020. Apparently, they will be 'walking' rather than skiing or boarding.

Hiroshima Prefecture is in the Chugoku region of western Japan. The capital city, Hiroshima, is on the southern coastline by the Seto Inland Sea. The two main regions of Hiroshima Prefecture where most of the ski hills can be found are the north-western region around Kita Hiroshima town and the north-eastern region of Shobara city.
