Makinoiri Kogen Snow Park the located on the northern slopes of Mt Kosha in Yamanouchi town, in the north-eastern region of Nagano Prefecture. It was until recently known as just 'Makinoiri Snow Park'.

This ski hill has had a bit of an on-off and confusing status over the last few seasons! Makinoiri Snow Park was to be part of the branded 'Mt Kosha' plan that included the five ski hills on the same mountain along with sharing a joint lift ticket. But then it was closed for a handful of seasons. And then it part re-opened. For the 2019-2020 season, two lifts will be operating - the Number 1 quad and Number 2 triple lift. It seems the Number 3 pair lift will be 'rested' this season. The resort plans to open the summit lift from the 2020-2021 season.

Nagano Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of the main island of Honshu. Most of the Northern Alps, Central Alps and Southern Alps are located within Nagano (along with neighbouring prefectures). Nagano has the second highest number of ski and snowboard resorts in all of Japan and they are spread around the whole prefecture. Nagano city and many of the major ski resorts are located in the northern region.
