Camping in Japan

There are literally hundreds of campgrounds in Japan where you can enjoy the great outdoors or a cheap outing with the family. Some are free, some have cabins and activities, and many have rental tents and other gear available. If you plan to go to a specific area, it's a good idea to try and contact the local or prefectural tourism office to see if they have an updated list of campgrounds available.
