Top Rock Climbing Trips in Japan
The wild mountainside of Japan has strongly influenced its history, culture, and customs. And with the abundance of mountains has cultivated a strong rock climbing scene. Japan is made up of a stratovolcanic archipelago that stretches over 3,000 kilometers, offering breathtaking alpine scenery. Standing out of the crowded peaks, Mount Fuji is the highest and most symbolic summit in the country. Visit between July and September for prime rock climbing conditions.
Located in the far east, the island nation of Japan lies just off the coast of continental Asia. Comprised of approximately 6,852 islands, with most of the population residing on the four largest islands. Most of the terrain is rugged and carpeted in forest, with a liberal sprinkle of volcanoes scattered across the islands. This creates a wonderful natural playground for rock climbing, and is accessible for all types of climbers.
The north of the country receives a humid and continental climate, while the south experiences a subtropical and rainforest climate. And its coastal geography results in a high level of rainfall each year.
You can visit all year round.
