Otoifuji is a small ski hill located on the south-western foothills of Mt Otoifuji, close to the central area of Otoineppu village in the northern region of mainland Hokkaido. There are two ski lifts on the official course map but the top one is currently not operating - so there's just one 765m pair lift.

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.

2018-2019 SKI RESORT INFORMATION UPDATES
As the 2018-2019 winter season approaches, we are gradually updating the information on these pages (for every ski resort in Japan).

Many ski resorts in Japan do not update their own information until late autumn. Our process of updating information will be ongoing right through until the end of November. In the meantime, ski resorts usually open and close around the same dates each year - so even if the planned season dates shown on this page are still from the 18-18 season, they can be used as a good indication of the upcoming season.
