About the Event

As its name suggests, the Tokyo Hillclimb Hinohara Stage is one of a series of several hillclimb challenges around Tokyo. Among cyclists in the know, Hinohara is believed to be one of the best climb courses in the country due to the immaculate road conditions.

Known by local Tokyo residents as a popular resort area for urbanites seeking nature’s refuge, Hinohara Village is located on the western edge of Tokyo and touch both Yamanashi and Kanagawa Prefectures. The village is also home to the Chichibu Tama Kai National Park, which boasts a beautiful natural environment with an expansive forest and clear streams.

About the 25KM hill climb course
The starting area will be near the clock tower on Hinohara Street and Okutama Shuyou Street of Hinohara Village. The course runs through Henbori District and Kazuma District. It will pass the Hinohara Citizens' Forest into the finish line in Kazaharitoge, home to Tokyo's highest road at 1,146m (about 3,800ft).

The course is very well-maintained throughout the year by the Tokyo Prefecture Construction Bureau, and there are no rocks or sand on the surfaces. Compared to the Tokyo Hillclimb Okutama Stage and the Nariki Stage, the slope is easier to climb. However, there are some short but technical descents.

History of the Town

Hinohara Village is west of Tokyo Prefecture and just 2 hours from the heart of the city. Approximately 90% of the village is surrounded by forest - surround yourself in the lush, green environment brought to you by Mother Nature! Listen carefully and you'll hear not just the birds chirping but the trickle of the stream flowing through the forest.
