Camping

Japanese love outdoor life, and camping has always been popular among the younger set and those young at heart. During the summer holidays, especially between July 20 and August 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 excellent way to make new friends.

There are currently more than 3,000 campsites scattered all over Japan, mostly owned and managed by public bodies.
