Jan 16th is American Martin Luther King Jr. Day and we are planning a family camping trip for anyone who wants to just relax at the lake and not worry about planning, shopping, cooking, setting up and have time to enjoy yourself at the lake. We will have several heaters just in case you get cold. We will be 25 min from two ski resorts. You can go skiing, snowboarding, sledding and there is a snow park for kids to play at both Fujiten, located on the foothills of Mt. Fuji, and Kamuimaska Ski Area, located in mountains of Yamanashi. You will also have time to explore the area such as the different caves in the area, fishing, kayaking, biking and so much more. Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page if you like to participate. Leave a message if you have any questions.
