If OS is Android, "iphone" or "android" either one is fine.

If OS is iOS, "iphone" is launch the Apple Maps and, "android" is launch the Google Maps.

You can find out about campsite detail information here.

The information on this page is when I had researched.

I introduce just my personal opinion, so it may be wrong.

Please understand that the information at that time may have changed.

There are many free campsites in Japan. If you will camp in Japan, in most cases you have to reserve and get permission for use the campsite.

The campsites is crowded on the weekend and holiday. So you should better to reserve the campsite beforehand.

Please enjoy camping in Japan!

View of campsite

The park is located at the riverside of the middle basin of Okudake River. There is a parking lot and a toilet in the park.

The ground is hard gravel. So if you will camp there, you need a camping mat that is not thin.

There is a shade of the trees, but it's far from the parking lot.

Cooking facility

There is a clean stainless sink in the cooking facility at the back of the toilet.

The water is not good for drinking directly. Please boil, if you drink the water.

Dry riverbed

I used my bonfire stand and made a bonfire not to get the mountain stream dirty.

It was easy to find many tree branches as firewood at the riverside.

Many people visited this park in the daytime, and used the toilet.

But the flush toilet was kept clean.

There are many large trees in the parking lot. So we can relax in the cool shade of the trees.

The wide shallow place is in the river, so children can enjoy to play in the river.
