View of the campsite

The campsite is located at the riverside of Awano-river flows through the north area of Shimonoseki city. It is 5 km from the sea.

There is no light in the park, so it is difficult to find the entrance of the campsite.

The tent site is covered by soft lawn, and so wide.

No.1 tent site is most nearest to the cooking facility, but it is in the mountain shade in the morning. If you want to dry your wet tent early, it would be better to set up your tent on No.5 site.

Awano river

There is the stairs leading into the river, so it is possible to play with water. But the water is not so clear.

There is no light in the campsite, so we could see the twinkle stars in the night, and in early summer, fireflies can be seen.

We could see flock of deers in front of us too.
