The Akaishi Mountains

Akaishi Mountains (赤石山脈, Akaishi Sanmyaku) is a mountain range in central Honshū, Japan, bordering Nagano, Yamanashi and Shizuoka prefectures. It is also called the Southern Alps (南アルプス, Minami Arupusu), as it joins with the Hida Mountains ("Northern Alps") and the Kiso Mountains ("Central Alps") to form the Japanese Alps.



Our goal is to ride the central mountain passes, many roads lost to time and weather. 

2 days - 200km - 7350m

MTB, Gravel or CX is required and gear for 2 days of riding in the high mountains.
