Just some quick notes this time…
This trip was a late spring (or early summer?) overnight camp on the shores of Lake Toya. It was a plan hatched by Alex, I believe. So we hired a car and filled it up with camping gear and folding bikes, and headed southwest from Sapporo City to the lake. This was after work on Friday, so we got to the campground relatively late after leaving Sapporo at around 5pm. Alex and Simon were already there. Rick, Jeff, and Karissa all arrived even later than we did. The next day consisted of cycling, lounging around, and enjoying BBQ food.
Our campground for the night: Nakatoya Campground (仲洞爺キャンプ場, 450yen per person).
Onsen: There’s an onsen right over the road from the campground – the Nakatoya Onsen (仲洞爺温泉, 420yen per person).
