Ontake Nigorigo High Altitude Training Center


Training Support

Cognitive movement training

Careful support is provided to improve the “quality of motion” through repeated training.

Low oxygen training

This facility is an “excellent hypoxic facility” certified by the Japan Hypoxia Training Association, and there is a permanent presence of an accredited hypoxic training trainer. We support you to train safely and effectively. We also provide feedback after training by professional staff.

Please feel free to contact us for training.

We provide a balanced diet for athletes.

In particular, the menu structure has been devised so that the training effect will be maintained without breaking the conditions during high altitude training, such as ingestion of “iron” that is easily lost in high altitude environments.
We also provide meals tailored to the characteristics of the competition. Please consult us. Please let us know in advance if you have any food allergies.
