Japan traveler's meeting November 6-7, 2010

World Touring Network - Japan (WTN-J) Camp Meeting
November 6-7, 2010
Akiha Jinja-mae Campground, Shizuoka Prefecture, JAPAN

The World Touring Network-Japan will be holding a camp meeting on November 6-7. 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 nearby Akiha Auto Campground and are charged 2,500 yen, you are in the wrong place.

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

Chris,

would love to come, but really busy. Maybe next time you can have the meeting in the Shikoku area??

To everyone else: if you want to meet a biker who knows all the "doooos" and "donts" over here in the land-of-the-not-always-rising-sun, attend the meeting!! Chris is the man!!!!

Great

Im excited to be there.

My girlfriend and myself have travelled around the world and just happen to be near that area at the right time. We have had a great trip and look forward to sharing some stories.

We have travelled on xt 250s and our website is Home - Journey around the world

Japan is truly a wonderful place to be riding a motorcycle.

Thanks for the detailed location info

Cheers
Dano

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.
