Think about combining your Congress experience with a climbing experience while you are in Japan

There are three hugely iconic mountains that make up the three holy summits in Japanese culture. Mount Tate is home to incredible hot springs and clear-blue lakes. Mount Haku is contained with a UNESCO-listed site flush with forests, lakes and snow-capped volcanic peaks. And the great Mount Fuji, standing at 3,776 meters, is the highest peak in the country, and one of the most iconic symbols of Japan.

The geography of Japan is perfectly suited for stunning alpine climbs on the rugged slopes. Rock climb on the deeply iconic dormant volcano of Mount Fuji, the highest point in the entire country. The Hotaka mountains that stretch across three regions offer incredible rock climbing opportunities.

Whether you’re searching for boulders, a quick climb, or a challenging multi-pitch climb, Japan has a wide range of options, whether it’s the level of difficulty, type of surface, or time of the year.
