Japan travelers' meeting Nov. 21-23

World Touring Network - Japan (WTN-J) Camp Meeting
November 21-23, 2009
Akiha Jinja-mae Campground, Shizuoka Prefecture, JAPAN

The World Touring Network-Japan will be holding a camp meeting on November 21-23. Come meet motorcycle travelers, swap stories. Newcomers to international touring can also pick up tips from those who have been before.
Free for traveling riders from other countries who are visiting Japan.

Information in Japanese: Site
Pictures of campground (to help find the entrance): SITE
Map in English: http://www2.gol.com/users/chrisl/map2/mapfile.jpg
Directions:
From the Hamamatsu or Hamamatsu-nishi exit of the Tomei Expressway in Shizuoka Prefecture, take highway 152 north to highway 362/473 to intersection with pefectural road (kendo) 286 in Haruno Town (28 km from the expressway). Take road 286 about 1 km towards Akiha-jinja Shimo-sha (Shinto shrine).
The campground is on the left side of the road along the river. Look for a "WTN-J" sign (there should be one). Note that there is another campground in the area. If you go to Akiha Auto Campground and are charged 2,500 yen, you are in the wrong place.

Be aware that it will be COLD. Dress for the occasion.

Call my cell phone if you get lost (080-5020-0591) I think it will work there.

Here is a hint when looking at information on Horizons Unlimited:
Always check the date! That meeting was in 2009...
Sometimes really old topics get brought up again and again.

I am sure we will have a meeting this year. But the date is not decided yet.
I will post an announcement when I know.

Ride safe!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
