Take a road trip through Japan in a fully-equipped campervan with a rooftop tent
With a few days to summer, there is no better time to enjoy the great outdoors. Although Japan is home to pretty luxuries glamping sites, sometimes the best way to explore is to just follow the road wherever it takes you. If taking the road less traveled sounds like your kind of adventure, Land campers maybe just the thing you are looking for.
Overland Campers offers a way to explore Japan at your own pace. You will have a fully equipped motorhome with a tent on the roof, a mini kitchen, bedding and everything you need to enjoy a good road trip. In addition, Japan has really scenic routes that you can use to your advantage.
Cars are designed to go anywhere for long periods of time. You will therefore have portable batteries, bedding, a wood-burning fireplace, a gas stove, utensils, tables and chairs, card games, camping lights, phone chargers, Bluetooth speakers, a navigation system and more. You can even add extras like bike racks, snow chains or a projector and screen for watching movies.
The best feature of the cars is the foldable roof top tent, which can accommodate two to three people and can be packed in just 60 seconds. The rooftop tent is a prime spot for stargazing and simply admiring the sights and sounds of your surroundings.
The beauty of using an Overland Camper is that you can get off the roads and squeeze into smaller spots that would otherwise be too cumbersome for a regular RV or van. Park the car at a reserved campsite, car campsite, michi-no-eki (roadside station) or find a place deep in nature. When booking your trip, Overland Campers employees can help you find the perfect place to camp.
Depending on the size of your party, you can choose from different vehicles including a Suzuki Jimny Sierra, Toyota FJ Cruiser, or Land Rover Defender. Best of all, Overland Campers is English speaking, so please feel free to ask any questions of the staff. Car rentals start at 18,800 per day.
