Convey the charm of Yamanashi and MTB at Minami-Alps Tatenuma MTB Park!

This Southern Alps Tatenuma MTB Park was created by the volunteers of the Southern Alps Mountain Bike Fan Club, which consists of approximately 140 people run by the Minami-Alps Mountain Guardians.

Aiming to popularize mountain biking (MTB), this park has developed a trail course for beginners, children, and families to enjoy, and has been open to the public free of charge since November 22, 2021. It is one of the largest mountain bike parks in the country.

Through this Southern Alps Tatenuma MTB Park, we are working to spread the charm of the nature of the Southern Alps of Yamanashi Prefecture, the charm of the local area, and the charm of MTB to outdoor enthusiasts and MTB enthusiasts inside and outside the prefecture.

Anyone can enjoy it, including mothers and children

Experience nature at Minami-Alps Tatenuma MTB Park

Minami-Alps Tatenuma MTB Park is perfect for beginners and families!

Minami-Alps Yamamoribito is an organization that has been active for nine years with the aim of popularizing MTB in Japan. One of the biggest reasons why MTBs are not popular in Japan is that there are few beginners and families who make up the bottom layer of the pyramid in the Japanese MTB market. Only when there is an environment where anyone can casually enjoy MTB can MTB become a prefectural-level sport and a national sport.

Minami-Alps Tatenuma MTB Park was opened as “a trail that everyone, including beginners and families, can enjoy without hesitation, recognized by the region and the government.” It is an initiative that will be an advanced example in Japan, and we believe that it will greatly contribute to the spread of MTB in Japan in the future.

Characteristics of Tatenuma MTB Park

The Minami Alps Tatenuma MTB Park is unique in that it is the largest free-to-use MTB park in Japan. The 8 trails (MTB course) are about 3 km long and cover an area of about 7 hectares (70,000 m²), which is about 5 times larger than the ground area of Tokyo Dome (13,000 m²).

Ground area of Tokyo Dome: 13,000 m²

This course was developed by the Minami-Alps Mountain Bike Club, which consists of about 140 people. This organization has been working on local history, culture, nature and sustainable trail development since 2013, and is also making efforts to contribute to his SDGs such as maintenance of forests and mountain trails and community contribution activities.

SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)

This park does not have a resident manager. We believe that people who enjoy MTB love nature and follow good manners, so we have put up signboards that describe the rules (you can check it on the official website). Please use the park in accordance with these rules. To use the park, please register your user information online in advance.

Locally, the signal conditions for “au” and “Softbank” are poor, so you can’t register for use, so please complete this in advance.

User guide

It’s basically a trail that you can enjoy for free, but it costs money to maintain and manage a trail that you can run safely and enjoyably forever. As the first attempt in Japan to secure such financial resources, we have introduced a “voluntary billing system” in which users decide the amount of money they charge themselves.

Thank you for your cooperation. Click here for the maintenance fee.

Children having fun at Tatenuma MTB Park

On the official page of the Minami-Alps Tatenuma MTB Park, an online bulletin board has been set up so that trail maintenance information can be shared. If you register as a user, you can freely post trail information, and park users can participate in trail maintenance together.

If you are with your child, it will also be an education for nature conservation.

We aim to build one of the world’s largest trail networks that will also serve as a base for mountain bikers from around the world. With a population of 30 million in the metropolitan area and close proximity to Haneda Airport and Shin-Shizuoka Airport, the Southern Alps area aims to become a MTB mecca as a perfect place for demonstration experiments.

And we will realize true regional revitalization in Japan by mountain bikers.
