Ogahara Kogen is a small ski hill located in Kita Hiroshima town in the north-western region of Hiroshima Prefecture. It is located by the side of Route 186 and quite close to the much larger Geihoku Kokusai and Osa.

Ogahara Kogen announced it was closing on 10th December 2019 after struggling for snowfall in later years. More information about Ogahara Kogen can be found on SnowJapanHistory.com.

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.
