We like Mitake

Mitake is situated on a nice river adding a very nice ambiance to the boulders scattered around it. There are super classic problems of many grades. The Ninja boulder is the most popular area with problems v5 and up. A bit crowded on weekends and holidays, due to it's proximity to Tokyo.
Mitake located west of Tokyo is nearest bouldering spot from central Tokyo. A hour half by train from Shinjuku.
Many nice problems on boulders spread along the river bed, including the classic benchmark problem Ninja Gaeshi. Easy access from Tokyo by train and on-site pad rental at the Manunga 2nd hand outdoor store (opposite the 7Eleven) make this a perfect destination for business trip weekends.
