This is one of Japan’s premiere locations for rock climbing, so any trip here is sure to please every traveler in need of an adventure.




Good to Know



It can be far too cold to enjoy a climb from late October into May. As the spring pushes out the unstable weather patterns, the temperatures increase into the summer months. It can be uncomfortably hot into the fall.

Best Time to Visit

Climbing Ogawayama is a summer affair (think May through October), though it can get crowded during peak season. Early and late season trips can be more pleasant and manageable.
