Rules

1. Quiet time

Many types of people come to use this campground: people hiking the Michinoku Coastal Trail, people who just want to camp. Some campers need to get up early the next day, so please respect the campground quiet time. Quiet time starts at 9:00 PM.

2. Fire usage

Please abide by the following and be very careful. See this Japanese image for details on what kinds of stoves you can use.

  • No open campfires
  • Auto camping sites can use the firepit at each site.
  • Tent campers can use their fire pits on the gravel area only.
  • The only fireworks OK for use are handheld sparklers, in the gravel area only. (Please use responsibly and be considerate of others)
  • Discard your ashes at the designated container next to the composting toilet.
  • Alcohol and gas stoves are OK to use under close supervision (please be careful)
  • This area can be very windy during certain seasons and times of day. Be especially careful about the lawn and dried grass. If something feels unsafe, put the fire out immediately.
  • No fires allowed on campground when a fire warning is in effect (maximum wind speed is over 10 meters per second, when maximum humidity is less than 35%, etc).

※ Natori Trail Center does not currently sell firewood, so please bring your own.

3. Disasters and accidents

In case of an earthquake/tsunami

If there is an earthquake while you’re using the campground and there is a tsunami advisory, a tsunami warning, or a major tsunami warning, evacuate immediately. If it was a strong earthquake and you cannot tell if there was a tsunami advisory or warning, evacuate. The closest shelter to Natori Trail Center is Yuriage Chuo Danchi. Use the emergency stairs and go to the roof.

In case of sudden illness, fire or an accident

In case of sudden illness, a fire, or accident while Natori Trail Center is open, please tell a staff member.
If you can’t find a staff member or the center is closed, please use your cell phone to call 110 for the police or 119 for the fire department or an ambulance. Then call staff at the emergency number provided at check-in.
Interpretation services when calling 119 are available in many places through Japan, including in Natori. See this Fire Disaster and Management Agency page for details in Japanese.

5. Be considerate of others

All kinds of people can enjoy staying at Natori Trail Center’s campground, from Michinoku Coastal Trail hikers to locals to people from other areas. Be considerate of other people so everyone can have a good time, including not making too much noice.

6. Other notes
About the surrounding environment

This campground is situated in an area that was struck by the 2011 tsunami. It’s close to the ocean and while the wind is strong, there aren’t enough surrounding trees or buildings to block the wind. Please understand the area is windy and you will need to be especially careful setting up your tent and using campfires.

Camping with pets

You can camp with our pet, but be considerate of other campers and follow basic pet etiquette, including keeping your pet on a leash and cleaning up after it.
※ Be especially careful to keep track of your pet if you use an extendable leash.
Please note pets aren’t allowed in Natori Trail Center.

Smoking

Smokers can use the designated smoking area next to the composting toilet. There is no ashtray, so please use a pocket ashtray to take your cigarette waste home. Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Nearby attractions

There are many places to see and enjoy within about a 10 to 20 minute walk of Natori Trail Center, including the Yuriage Harbor Morning Market and Maple Hall and Kawamachi Terrace Yuriage where you can enjoy some of Natori’s tasty treats, Natori Cycle Sports Center where you can rent bicycles, enjoy family fun and bathe in the hot springs (day use OK), and the Natori City Earthquake Reconstruction Museum where you can learn about the damage done to this area by the 2011 tsunami and subsequent recovery. We definitely recommend using the campground as a base and going to see the sights around Yuriage.
