Sites!

Hello Patrick,
Thanks for your excellent advice on hill-climbing techniques.
Races (particularly “Hill-Climb” races) in Japan are generally arranged by one of two major sporting organizations:

http://funride.jp/
http://www.sportsentry.ne.jp/top.php

There are other smaller organizers that are gradually gaining popularity, but these are the main two.
One of our other members (Edogawakikkoman) may be able to give you some more advice about racing in Japan - Haven't heard from him recently though, after his skiing exploits.
Please wait for him to reply. Otherwise, the two above addresses are the best I can do for you.
Travis

P.S. You may need a translator for the Japanese.
