Nayoro Piyashiri is located on the southern slopes of Mt Kudo to the west of the peak of Mt Piyashiri. The resort is less than 10km to the north east of central Nayoro City in the northern region of mainland Hokkaido. There are two ski jump hills close to the resort base.

There are four ski lifts, but the Number 4 pair lift will not be operating this season.

Hokkaido is the second largest island of Japan and also the largest and northernmost prefecture (though it is not usually referred to as a prefecture). It has coastlines on the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk and also the Pacific Ocean. Sapporo is the capital city of Hokkaido and was host to the 1972 Winter Olympics. Hokkaido is home to the largest number of ski hills in Japan. While the majority of them are very small, some of the larger ski and snowboard resorts in Hokkaido - mostly found in regions to the west and east of Sapporo - are amongst the most famous in Japan.
