Description

Japan Travel takes you on a spectacular adventure to Miyakejima Island - relax at a beach side campground, explore the island, or just take a dip in an "onsen" hot spring!

Details

The setting of this adventure weekend camping trip takes place on the beautiful island of Miyakejima. The island has a dramatic volcanic past and many lunar lava landscapes, stunning rock formations, and the interaction of Mother Nature and the local people. There will be opportunities to explore the island, snorkel, swim, scuba dive, hike, go to an "onsen" hot spring, relax, and more.

This is a very popular trip, and it gets booked out quickly so make sure you SIGN UP early!

We have reserved cabins on the large passenger ferry to the island with plenty of places to hang out, relax, and party. We will stay at an ocean facing campsite which has great facilities, even hot water solar showers. There are also a couple of nice snorkeling spots a short walk from the campground.
