Located in the small town of Ishikawa-machi, is a nice granite area in the forest that has problems from VO to V10. There are also a few routes on the Behemoth Boulder.
From the GPS location as the starting point, pass through the torii gate, ascend the first flight of stairs up to the shrine but turn left and follow a faint trail BEFORE going up the second flight of stairs. Follow the trail as it ascends up the mountain. The first boulder you should get to will be the Cheese Grater Boulder.
