Sayuri Ogawa

Declaration of safe climbing. I'm going home with a smile on my face.

Born in Komagane City at the foot of the Central Alps. Started climbing mountains to train for snowboarding. Just as he was starting to long for the backcountry, a friend of his lost his life in an avalanche. He realized that mountains are not only fun but also risky, and in 2014, he himself experienced an eruption just below the summit of Mount Ontake. “I don't want people to feel sad in the mountains, and I don't want them to." With this in mind, he has been working as a guide and rescue team member mainly in the Central Alps. He also teaches lessons learned from the eruption of Mount Ontake. Apart from mountains, he loves cats. Overseas Mountaineering Experience: Biharijot (2001), Mont Blanc (2002), Matterhorn (2003), Grandes Jorasses (2003).
