There are seven designated tent sites along the Trail, allowing you to camp while hiking the Trail.
Carry your tent, camping and cooking gear and spend the whole day right on the Trail—it will make for a much deeper hiking experience! The tent sites are simple campgrounds created specifically for those hiking the Shin-etsu Trail, with just enough space for your tent.
