A not-that-big bouldering area, though enjoyable. In the forest on the hillside. The grading is quite severe compared to Mitake.

There are a few routes, a crag where to place protections or to toprope - didn't try it, most likely around 5.11 - and 2 routes on a slab.

The 2 routes on the slab are one above the other, both of them properly bolted. The lower route is a 5.10x and the upper one a 5.11x. Both of them are very short and can be climbed together in one go. Funny thing, there are no bolts at the summit of the second route, so the last move - the interesting one - has to be lead. From the top of the route, you stand on the hilltop where the boulders stand and you can walk down.

The blog gecko2005 gives you an idea of the site and the grading of a few problems.

There's a very good guidebook, with pictures and so on… but I have no idea where to find it: I borrowed some copies in the Tsukuba climbing gym… so bad!

The Japanese bouldering grading system is explained on Thousand Cranes
