    Baked Butt Hang - JAPAN - July 27/28

    Planning the 3rd group hang event this summer on July 27/28 (Sat/Sun).

    Debating on whether to continue baking our butts at the same terrific location as previous events or try another place. Open to suggestions on this thread but would appreciate if we can keep to areas accessible by both public transportation and private vehicle. Also within reach from Tokyo/Yokohama.

    Thanks!!

    Baked Butt Hang - JAPAN - July 27/28

    New place suggestion: Hatonosu Garden Camp (Okutama)

    Pros: Cheap, River runs along camp in a valley so should be cool?, campfire ok, easy going caretaker, running water and restrooms, very popular hiking trail nearby

    Cons: Small, need to hike 5-10 min via switch back to get to location (see YouTube video at 5 min mark), parking exists but along the side of the road and need to hike in.

    Iíll try to scout the area and if lucky, may try to fastpack and camp.

    Iíd like to check the new place before deciding because Iím not sure if the campís property extends down to the river and that is the only place to hang. Also, Iím not sure if you are ok parking your jeep on the side of the road?

    Baked Butt Hang - JAPAN - July 27/28

    Just got back from a trip to Lake Kawaguchi and passed by the New Bridge Campsite.

    http://www.fujigoko.tv/newbridge/index.html

    Pro: Near the lake and felt cool; 20 min to the nearest station by foot; car drop off at the campsite and parking lot nearby; beer vending machine; lots of trees to hang on; trash collection

    Con: Near main road, I think its around •1300 per person and may have additional fee for parking. I can call to find out.

    The caretaker said there should be no problems with vacancy.

    Itís getting close to the event and did not manage to visit the one in Hatonosu. Iíll give them a call later today.
