UPDATE: Free tent space available!

Tickets seems to be easily obtainable from 7 to 8 pm. at Takeshita ferry port. See Andy's previous post for upgrading to a reserved seat.

There are spare tents at the campsite. Enough for about 4 people. Let me know if you'd like to reserve one. Free of course.

The weather looks good for most of this week -- partly sunny with highs of 25 and lows of 14.
Meet at Takeshiba Ferry Terminal at 7pm. If you can get there earlier, even better! Please check the availability of tickets when you arrive.

There are many things to do on the island, including hiking, glass blowing, fishing, snorkeling, and of course  :beer:

The campsite has nice facilities including clean bathrooms, covered kitchen area with electricity and free use of pots and pans and cooking utensils. You can shower at the 24 hour onsen which is a 10 min. bike ride away from the campsite. Showers cost 100 yen.
Ferry tickets cost about 4500 yen each way. Daily budget for meals, etc. is about 2000 yen.

I know it's a bit late for posting this, but I wasn't sure I would be able to take off days from work.

The island of Niijima has a gorgeous free campsite. There are white sand beaches and a 24 hour outdoor onsen which is also free. No need to bring food, there are lots of shops there. Bicycle rental is available and recommended.

I plan to leave on the night ferry this Tuesday, 5/2 and stay until Sunday 5/7. Meet at 7pm at Takeshiba pier. It's a 10 min walk from Hamamatsu-cho or Daimon stations. Ferry tickets sell out quickly and will probably be all gone by 9pm.
Of course, you can come later in the week and stay as long as you'd like.

Reply if interested. I will post more details tomorrow.




Things to Bring (持参もの)

必要なもの:
テント、寝袋など
水着(混浴温泉のため)
暖かい洋服(夜は寒くなるから)
ストーブ、コーヒーカップ、食器(キャンプ場に鍋やフライパンはあります)

Tent, sleeping bag and mattress
Swimsuit (the onsen is mixed bathing so you need to wear one)
Warm clothes (it can get very chilly at night)
Stove, coffee mug, eating utensils (the campground has a kitchen area with pots and pans)

Hello,
I am a new member on the Forum.
I was planning to go camping on the islands with my girlfriend but not Tuesday, maybe later like Thursday. Maybe we could meet later?
Originally was planning to go to Shikinejima, but Niijima seems nice too!
Where is the campground on Niijima?

Cheers
Marc

Hi Marc.
I attached a map of the island to this event post. The campsite is clearly labeled.
Call or text me before you arrive, I might be able to meet you at the pier.

Oh yes I'd missed that picture, thanks.
Not 100% sure we'll come yet, but if we do I'll call you!
