7/26 (Sat), 8/3 (Sun) Day Earth Camp 〜 Tohoku Fisherman’s BBQ 〜 (Tokyo)

Day Earth Camp  〜 Tohoku Fisherman’s BBQ 〜

Camp out for a day under the sun in the beautiful nature of Mitake with Earth Camp! Surrounded by river and mountains, you will find it hard to believe it’s Tokyo.

We will enjoy activities with feet in the crystal clear water and outdoor activities such as chopping wood, starting a fire and learning rope work, and have fun challenging our survival skills.

Tohoku Fisherman’s BBQ will have the freshest seafood from Minamisanriku, along the coast in Tohoku.

If you have the night open, camp out overnight with us and enjoy campfire under the stars (only 7/26)!

The event is facilitated in English, opening doors for you to engage in all activities first hand. Come and connect with Tohoku, have fun and enjoy an earthy day!

* This is a chance to enjoy “Fisherman’s BBQ” which can usually be experienced in the Earth Camp overnight programs in Minamisanriku. Today, in Minamisanriku, the local fishermen are in the midst of redeveloping the fishery industry after the Great East Japan Earthquake, the primary industry in the town. We will enjoy their amazing seafood in the middle of Tokyo’s wilderness.
