Company Summary

The Warehouse (ザウエハウス) will be a climbing gym located in Tokyo, Japan. The gym's concepts are accessibility and total climbing fitness. Climbing gyms in Tokyo tend to be beginner unfriendly, and lacking creativity. The Warehouse offers climbers the opportunity to cross-train using gym equipment, yoga, and outdoor excursions. For beginners, entrance and lesson costs will be small encouraging a smooth introduction into the climbing community.
