Camp Japan

01/08/2018: Since completing a travel writing internship in Tokyo, I started traveling more of Japan. My aim is to visit as many outdoor and wildlife hotspots as possible and capture the moments on camera! Along the way I’ll be trying to see more of Japan’s unique cultural festivals or “matsuri”. So far I’ve visited Nagano, Akita, and am about to head north to the wilderness of Hokkaido for a month. I’ll be living out of my KiwiCamping tent and praying no bears decide to pay me a visit while I’m asleep…

Check out my camping adventures below! One entry per campsite.
