Manba is located in the Kannabe Kogen region of Toyooka in the northern region of Hyogo Prefecture.

Manba is lift and course connected (at the top) with Oku Kannabe and they share a lift ticket. Manba generally offers larger courses than Oku Kannabe. The other ski area that is currently operating in the Kannabe Kogen area is Up Kannabe.

New snow making machines have been introduced at Manba, along with a new 'entry charge' which means that you need either that or a valid ski lift ticket to enter the area.

Hyogo Prefecture is located in the Kansai region of western Japan. It stretches the width of the country and has a coastline both on the Sea of Japan to the north and on the Seto Inland Sea to the south. Most of the ski and snowboard resorts in Hyogo Prefecture are located in the northern region of the Prefecture.
