Description

Kinkasan is a small island in Miyagi Prefecture in north-eastern Japan. It lies in the Pacific Ocean approximately one kilometer off the Oshika Peninsula.
Since few year climbing it’s Légal

Once on the island, as Kinkasan is sacred, you are only allowed to sleep in the shrine’s accommodation.

is definitly worth a visit, even if the accommodation is pricy (70E a night with full pension). Wherever you lay your eyes, there is perfection: in the wood work of the dragons that decorate the beams, the stone work of the stairs, the way trees have grown, the wild life. Kinkasan feels sacred. Really. And it is an immense privilege to be allowed to climb on the island. The monks decided, made the choice to welcome rock lovers, and hopefully their openness will be a good decision.
Soon you can sleep outsite in tente

​It stil a big potentiel of first accent to do !!
