Hi this is Chika from J-Hoppers Hiroshima guesthouse.
It's getting cool and seems summer is almost over....
I took a three days off and went to a small island to camping!!
Umashima island is located near Yanai in Yamaguchi.
I tell you hoe to get there from J-Hoppers Hiroshima guesthouse.
1,Take a tram no,8 to JR Yokogawa station(150yen)
2,Take a sanyo local line to tabuse station(1280yen)
*If you have JR rail pass,you can save this cost :-)
3,Take a taxi from the station to Marifu port(aroung 1500yen)
*they have no public transportation to Marifu port....
4,Ｔake a boat to Umashima island.(160yen)
It takes around 10 minutes to the island.
Please check the following link !!(Umashima boat time table )
We booked a camp site in advance.Please check their website!!
if you have a heavy backpack,you can hire a cart.
when we went to the island,there were not so many people there.
So we set up the tent near the beach!!
We only stayed there for 2 days.But I had really good and relaxing time there.
swimming,BBQ,fireworks,fishing and hammock!!!
There is no internet,no TV,no air conditionar...
But we could feel abundant gifts from nature :-)
We are planing to camping in another small island on October!!Can't wait!!
