Rock Climbing trips – Japan

Sleeping volcanoes, rugged coastal rock, and steep sacred summits

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.

More Info

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.

This trip was great! Yasuko was very helpful and friendly and brought us to a beautiful crag with many climbs
that were an appropriate difficulty for us to try. The climbs were extremely fun; the approaches were totally reasonable; and the crag was shockingly uncrowded. Yasuko also found us an inexpensive but delightful campground and did everything to make our trip successful and fun.
Takao was amazing and I had a very enjoyable climb in Hokkaido, thank you for facilitating!
