Japan traveler's meeting October 15, 2011

World Touring Network - Japan (WTN-J) Camp Meeting
October 15-16, 2011
Akiha Jinja-mae Campground, Shizuoka Prefecture, JAPAN

The World Touring Network-Japan will be holding a camp meeting on October 15-16. 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

Map in English: http://www2.gol.com/users/chrisl/map2/mapfile.jpg
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.

Hello to everyone attending.

I'm currently a British rider in Osaka, rode my bike here from England. Anyway i'd like to attend this meeting but unfortunately the engine in my motorbike is broken and i'm unable to ride it up from Osaka. Just wondering if anyone is attending from the Osaka area and wouldn't mind giving a fellow biker a lift up on the back of their bike.

Ali, you still haven't fixed your engine?
I'll ask around and see if anyone is coming from that direction and can give you a lift if you can't fix your engine in the next week and a half.

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.
