Kujyu Shinrin Koen Ski Resort
Head to Kuju in winter for a beginner-friendly ski resort.

The Kujyu Ski Resort opened two decades ago in December 1996, and has since welcomed large numbers of visitors each year.

The resort offers slopes for everyone from beginners to experienced skiers, and has a sledding spot for children. It attracts families with children, as well as visitors from China, Taiwan and the rest of Southeast Asia.

The resort creates high-quality, abundant snow using a snowmaking system of its own design, so skiers can be assured of skiing any time between December and March.

The resort is surrounded by a large number of hot spring spas, where visitors can enjoy a relaxing time after skiing.

Message from the Facility

Operating as a ski resort in the winter and as a park facility the rest of the year, this facility also allows visitors to fully enjoy the scenic highlands from the spring to autumn.

The month of June is ideal to go see the Kyushu azalea, Magnolia sieboldii ssp. japonica, and other flowers.

The red and yellow leaves of autumn are gorgeous, and visitors can enjoy views of the mountaintop from the Ferris wheel, which is named “Wild Boar.”
