Feb 20th is American Presidents Day and we are planning a camping trip for anyone who wants to just relax in the mountains filled with snow 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 camping at Asamanomori located 3 hours from Zama in Gunma Prefecture. We will be 20 min from Asama2000 Ski Resort where you can go skiing and snowboarding. On Sunday, February 19th, elementary and junior high school students up to age 19, their ski lift tickets are free. 20 year olds are half off. The 'Chibbiko Hiroba' area for young children is located near the base of the resort - entry is 500 yen. There is also an indoor 'Kids Room'. Entry is 500 yen. Entry to one includes entry to the other! If skiing or snowboarding is not your thing, we will be more than happy to assist you in finding something fun to do.
Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page if you like to participate. Leave a message if you have any questions.

You make your meal and wrap it in alumimum foil and cook directly on the campfire.
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.
