Camping in Aoki Lake, Nagano

Another of my favorite summer pastimes is camping. This year, we visited Aoki-ko in Nagano. This lake is near Hakuba, the famous skiing spot in Nagano, where the 1998 winter Olympics were held. However, this city also has great summer attributes as well. Lake Aoki, being one of the top 3 clearest lakes in Japan, does not allow motorboats on the lake. It's a beautiful place to go swimming and is the perfect temperature for such activities during summertime.

This campsite, which was recommended by our camping veteran friends, isn't listed on any internet website, is only 800 yen a night, and is very clean, small and private, with an excellent swimming area.

The nature around this place was astounding and the local area of Hakuba is convenient and foreigner friendly.

The area is full of beautiful scenery and nature.

We had a very good time.

Here are a couple of photos of where this great site lies.
