My pictures of Japan last summer
« on: February 15, 2016, 10:09:36 PM »
Wanted to post earlier, but... I'm really an adventurous type of person and I finally got the opportunity to hit the road for a month (well, had too many typhoons) and do some sightseeing and camping.  I basically just hopped off my new scooter and took some pictures. A few are the campsites I stayed at.  Also some nice sunsets and sunrises.  Enjoy.  Hope to hit the road again this summer and really travel all around Japan.  :)

Nice, thanks for posting. That's a long bridge.

What are the rules for camping there?

In Sweden, you can camp on basically any land you want (except fenced areas), as long as you don't leave a mess. http://www.sverigeturism.se/smorgasbord/smorgasbord/natrecspo/nature/every.html

I've got some seasonal pictures. I'll try to sort them out and post them also.  Thanks for taking a view.

yep, that is a world famous bridge. summer time the cars can be backed up like over 20 kilometers just to enter the bridge. there's a campground on the island there, i thought the beaches (2) were actually quite small
camping for tents should run about 10 bucks a night, at least that is what I paid
RV camping now is becoming popular, most campsites have what they call "auto camping" which means your auto can be parked next to the tent and you can use the water and electricity, that usually runs about 30 bucks a night
showers run about 2 bucks for 5 minutes of hot water
the family campgrounds are really nice
they have campgrounds also for cyclist but I don't know where they are yet, maybe this summer I'll find them

for rural camping most people (foreigners) just pop up a tent out in the forest or at community centers for the night and leave at sunbreak
it's fairly safe to camp by oneself, at least I get the impression it is, but I doubt I'll try camping along the river bed anytime soon

camping is fun, most campers never see a foreigner are friendly and even share the bbq's with me, yes I had lot of fun, but I never drink alcohol at the campgrounds
