Memorial Day Weekend Campout

Updated 05/016/2017 1740 *** Location changed


Join us on this spring camp to Lake Tanuki. Lake Tanuki, located in Yamanashi, is a manmade lake that is about 4km in diameter and is about 2 hours from Camp Zama. The campsite has western style toilets and coin shower. (5 min for ¥500). You can bring your dog. The campsite is large and has plenty of grassy areas to pitch the tents.  We will bring our kayak and rubber boats for everyone to take turns playing in them. You will have time to explore the area such as the different caves, fishing, kayaking, biking and so much more. We will assist you as needed.  This is also a great place to take photos of Mt. Fuji. 

Directions to the campsite from google maps .
You have an option to be on your own (you provide your own equipment and food) but have transportation, or have us prepare your meals. 

Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page if you like to participate. Leave a message if you have any questions.

Making breakfast can be fun. One of the breakfast is making omelettes in a ziplock baggies. The kids and even adults love to make this style breakfast. 



We love helping the kids make crafts from nature, play games and just enjoy nature. 



One of the meals is just a good ol' fashion BBQ.
