All facilities such as bathroom, shower room, kitchen and cabin are renovated in 2021. These are really clean and useful. You can also enjoy tent camping with your pet beside a beautiful river.
I have stayed at many kinds of cabins and cottages in Japan. I highly recommend YASUDAGAWA Cabin in Kochi, Shikoku.
Entrance of the campground
This campground is located in Kochi, Shikoku island.
However, people living outside of Kochi might think this place is too long for drive. Don't worry. It's easy to get to this campground from Kansai regions such as Osaka and Kobe, if you use the highway and stay there for one night, it's a 2 days plan.
(Example: You can drive from Osaka to the camp site for 5 hours.)
Inside the entrance, all facilities are paid services. Here, it's not for free like in public natural parks.
If you come here by car and hope to stay at cabin (wooden cottage), a parking lot beside a red a suspension bridge, is the closest to the cabin area.
