I am looking for a place to camp (tent, coming by bicycle or train), at walking distance from a beach, and not far from Tokyo.

Any recommendation?

I have found a few lists of camping addresses, but no reasonably exhaustive map.
There are lists in PDF format, but it is really hard to estimate location from that.
The ideal would be a Google-Maps-based mashup showing all campings, if that exists?

    All the beach areas vaguely near Tokyo that I have seen are extremely built up. Including freeways over the water itself. I would be very interested to know if there are campgrounds though. Jul 19, 2011 at 11:57

I've heard of people camping on the beach at Enoshima, but I don't think it's an official campground. Enoshima is about 1:30 from Tokyo and the station is a block or two from the beach.

    You'll recognize it by the surfboards and the freeways built over the water (-; I'll see if I can get some of my Japanese friends to look at this question... Jul 20, 2011 at 7:51
