I'm thinking about spending couple of days hiking in Iya Valley, Shikoku or Yagen Valley, Honshu.

I've read that there are awesome places for camping in which you can have a patch of grass for ¥500. Unfortunately, I won't have any equipment with me so my question is: is it possible to rent a tent in place or somewhere in the nearby cities (better if on the route of a JR train)?

First of all, here is a website that lets you search camp sites across Japan.

Regarding the two places you mentioned, a quick search resulted in this one:

There is a camping site in Iya Valley that lets you stay in a group hut or rent a tent. Here is their pricing list.

There seems to be only one camp ground in Yagen Valley, and it does not offer rentals. I also tried to find rental tents (テントのレンタル) in Mutsu city but could not find any.

  • I didn't find anything cause I didn't know how to query google in japanese :-) takes for the awesomes hints
