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.
Approach as for Zoku Ojisan Iwa, but continue straight up the slope till you hit rock. There is actually more than one path, and where you hit rock depends on which branch you're on. At the left hand end is Magga Slab; in the centre is the impressive roof of Rebecca e no Kagi. To the right are the broken buttresses of Cassandra and Kappa (and eventually the path from the top of Gamma Route pitch 3). The routes are described from right to left.©
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.
