Kita Shiga Komaruyama is located on the western slopes of Komaruyama, to the east of Mt Kosha in Yamanouchi town in the north-eastern region of Nagano Prefecture. There is a 'ski shrine' on the slopes at Komaruyama. Remember to pray to the snow gods if you go!

The larger scale Ryuoo Ski Park is close by. The ski and snowboard resorts of Mt Kosha are to the west and the Shiga Kogen region is to the south east of Kita Shiga Komaruyama.
