Mountain Cottage | Ogawayama Japan

Ogawayama, which lies on the border between Yamanashi and Nagano, is Japans most popular climbing area.

It was exactly these two passions, for climbing, and the outdoors, that attracted Setsumasa Kobayashi (outdoor clothing and gear designer) to this setting, and inspired him to create a secretive mountain getaway where he could use and test his outdoor-themed goods.
