Hakkai Sanroku is a small ski hill with two pair lifts located in the northern area of Minamiuonuma city in Niigata Prefecture. There is a cross-country ski course by the base area of Hakkai Sanroku. This ski hill is not to be mistaken with the nearby - and much larger and well-known - Muikamachi Hakkaisan resort.

Niigata Prefecture is located in the central region of Honshu to the north of Tokyo and has a 250km long coastline facing the Sea of Japan. Convenient transportation links make Niigata very easy to get to from Tokyo and other surrounding regions. There are over 50 ski and snowboard resorts in Niigata Prefecture, ranging from small one-lift hills to some of the most well-known and popular ski resorts in Japan. While they are dotted around the mountains of the prefecture, most are concentrated in the southern regions - in particular the Yuzawa town and Minamiuonuma city area in the Chuetsu region and Myoko city in the Joetsu region.
