Guided Bouldering Experience overlooking the Seto Inland Sea! (Okayama)


The Bouldering Community in Tamano, Okayama, would like to invite people who are interested in trying bouldering to join them for a guided climbing session at Ojigadake Bluffs, which overlook the beautiful Seto Inland Sea. This guided tour includes round-trip transportation from the climbing space near Uno Port in Tamano. Beginners are welcome to participate as there will be a professional guide leading the group. The tour also includes a special boxed lunch that uses Tamano City’s specialty seaweed and locally-grown vegetables, and an energy-boosting ice cream developed to supplement your energy after bouldering!
