Mominoki Shinrin Koen ('Mominoki Forest Park' in English) is a very small ski hill located to the north west of central Hatsukaichi city and Hiroshima city. One ropetow lift has serviced the course and there is also a yuki-asobi (playing in the snow) area and cross-country course. Along with the larger nearby Megahira, it is one of the closest ski hills to central Hiroshima city. Actually, this is the closest - but some may not call it a proper ski experience. Since the 2017-2018 season the rope lift has not be operating. Opening dates may vary depending on how kind nature has been with the supply of snow.

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.
