Tochigi Prefecture / Kogashi-Yama Rock Climbing
Shrine located in the open area in the middle.
The only great climbing area in the Utsunomiya area. Often crowded on weekends. The shrine in the middle and the waterfall are simply magic. Kick in some yen to the gods and the local access/climbing group to safety and to say thanks. There are laminated maps at the bottom of each crag with route details!
