Access issues inherited from Japan
Some spots have access issues as many spots near crowded places elsewhere. So please ensure you follow the recommendations of local climbers and behave responsibly.
head up the same approach as Toichimen- Mattannheki. After passing the second large boulder (first is Kumiko) veer straight up the Gully rather then following the path to the right. Continue to head straight up the gully till you reach the stunning wall of Jigoku Area.
Ethic inherited from Japan
There`s not a lot of information about climbing in Japan in English. Much of the information is only available in Japanese - or of course here on theCrag!
The Japan Free Climbing Association (http://freeclimb.jp/seibi/seibi.htm) is a good point of contact and there is a set of 5 guidebooks (all in Japanese) and an alpine guide book in English available covering all of Japan and its thousands of sport and trad routes and boulders.
