Rock climbing

As you know we have so many climbing athletes in Japan and areas as well.

There are many types of climbing. Sport, trad, multi-pitch and bouldering on granite, marble, tuff etc.

You can enjoy combination of climbing and camping or having great Japanese food at a Japanese style accommodation. Compared with something in alpine area, it has easier access and this is also a good option for weekend excursion.
