Konashidaira Camping Site, only a 5-minute-walk from Kappa-bashi Bridge, sits on a calm flat land surrounded by crabapples and pine trees. From the nearby picnic tables along the Azusa River, we enjoyed the view of the sheer bare mountain surface and racing clouds covering the mountain head. If you make a reservation, the site will prepare BBQ for you (only May to September). The campground is open from mid April to early November. Restrooms, public bath (12PM-7PM, 600 yen), and a small shop are also next to the site. They charge 800 yen per person if you have your own tent. A rental tent for 4-5 people costs 8000 yen per night. Their web site is here (Japanese only).

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS: An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here. 日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
