Camper Van Japan and Save!
You can save thousands of yen by hiring a campervan from japancampers.com. It’s near Narita airport, and runs a pick-up service from Narita station, so you can be mobile within a few hours of arriving. The campers start at ¥6,000 a day (roughly $50), less than you’d pay for a hotel room, and come with camping equipment. The staff are helpful, bilingual and just a phone call away if you run into difficulties. It is perfectly legal to sleep in your van anywhere you stop, giving you the freedom to roam around the world’s safest country, and the Japanese baths (sentos) are on hand for your daily scrub.
