Japanese love outdoor life, and camping has always been popular among the younger set and those young at heart. During the summer school holiday, especially between Jul. 20 and Aug.15, most of the campsites in scenic places are besieged by student campers. Though facilities and equipment available at Japanese campsites may not be equal to those you have experienced in Europe or North America, camping is an excellent way to make new friends. To avoid any possible disappointment, it is always wise to take your own camping gear with you and to get to your campsite well before dark. Please note that bus service to many campsites is often very limited. In the national parks and other restricted areas, camping outside the designated areas is strictly prohibited. Please check the notice board and ask if there are any local rules and regulations you should observe when you arrive at your campsite. There are currently more than 3,000 campsites scattered all over Japan, mostly owned and managed by public bodies. Listed below and in the pages to follow are a few of them.

How to read the listings:
