Things to do & See
Camping is a, perhaps surprisingly popular pastime in Japan.
Especially during the hotter Summer months and school holidays in July / August, many families pack up their car and head to the beach or into the mountains to enjoy family time in the Great Outdoors.
Many campsites offer more than just the basic facilities you would expect such as coin laundry and hot shower facilities.
Some campgrounds offer rental tents or have basic cabins with beds also available.
There are a number of 'Auto-Camps' set up to cater for those with campervans in Izu which provide dedicated spaces for your vehicle, an electric socket, and toilet/shower facilities - check the Rental Vehicles Page for more details.
Glamping has become extremely popular recently in Japan and there are a few sites worth a visit in Izu Peninsula offering high-quality experiences.
Generally, at a glamping site, everything is catered for and visitors can enjoy a luxurious camping experience without any of the hassles of packing and unpacking their camping equipment.
