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

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.
