Shikoku Camping Part 4 - Toyo Beach Camping

December 21, 2009

May 6th, 7th and 8th, 2009

We took a train east to Tokushima and caught another train south to the beaches and surfing area of Kochi. We found a wonderful grassy campsite next to the beach.

View from our tent.

Starting from the left, a small market with local foods, the tall building in the middle is a hotel near the campsite and the next building is the campsite office and our tents on the far right.

Unfortunately, it wouldn’t stop raining, We held out through Thursday night and decided it was time to go home. Friday morning when we got up, it became sunny, but I think we were ready to get back to our own beds.

The campsite has rental equipment, nice bathrooms, and a small local food store. There is a tiny town with a small market that's about a 10 minute walk from the campsite.

Getting There: Take a JR train to Kaifu. Then you must change to a private train line called Agasakaigan-Railroad. Go to the last stop of Kannoura. We took a 10 minute bus ride to the campsite from the train station.

I am so jealous of this right now. Also, the fact that there's a market walking-distance away. Oh, and a hotel walking distance away ... you know, if your air mattress goes flat or something?

But camping season is coming to Phoenix soon! I can't wait to go camping with you guys again :) My heart will swell with Happy.
