The pile of slabby faces just past the big rockfall on the right of the Kimpu-san Highway. There are one or two gems to be found, especially higher up the hillside. Almost all the routes are on excellent rock.©
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.
Continue up the Kimpu-san Highway from Sagan Slab. About 20m after the big rockfall on the right (Nightnurse RIP), a cairn marks a small path leading up in 50m to the base of a broad, low-angled slab, which offers a choice of first pitches for Gamma Route. This path then skirts the slab on the left and leads up to the slab containing Gamma Route pitch 2. The path from the second cairn leads directly to the left edge of the lower slab.©

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.
