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.
