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

From the Kitakomatsu station: Pass Hira Genki-mura and head towards Yobai Falls (楊梅の滝). At the start of the hiking trail, cross the bridge on the left and follow the cairns and signs for the waterfall for about 20 min. There will be a fork in the path with the lower right going to the waterfall and the upper left taking you to a series of ropes and 10 min walk to the start of the lion head multi-pitch

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.
