Had dinner a few days prior to this with a friend who is hooked on camping... after a few drinks he mentioned he`s headed to Fumotoppara camp grounds with an incredible view of Mount Fuji... so me in my semi drunken state accepted his invitation. Shoulda checked the weather forecast!
We arrived at 10 am and almost clear blue skies!
4,000 yen per vehicle. Check in time is an unusually early 8am and check out at 1pm the following day.
The camp ground map
Didn`t realize but GOOUT has their annual music festival here!
The view when we arrived... you can see just the tip of Mt. Fuji
This was the first and final time we saw Mount Fuji before the gray clouds and eventual rain arrived. UGH! BUT Checkout this instagram feed with Fumotoppara hashtags!
Mask for sale at reception.
Round log slices 300 yen. Unsure what you do with those.
BUT! These tiny 500 yen red nets are for the campfire logs.
There were faucets everywhere on the camping ground providing fresh mountain water. Had a very soft mellow flavor.
Taco Rice for lunch!
Nope... no Mount Fuji
Lots of fancy cars this day...
Brand new toilet washing facility.
Quite a few bikers.
My highlight of the evening... Johnsonville Chili Cheese hotdogs!
Random cat chasing little sparrows.
The campfire wood is sourced from the boardering forest.
They have lodging facilities too.
Overall its a massive camp ground. We stayed between the 2 big bathroom facilities but if you venture to the other areas there are porta-potties scattered about. Definitely check the weather forecast before heading out as cancellations are acceptable until 8am of the day otherwise its a very long 29 hours of sitting around with no views.
