Getting There: Carpooling is probably the best option (as there are limited parking spaces available). If you need help finding a ride or would like to volunteer to be a driver, please let us know as soon as possible.

Accommodations: The cabins at Otachimisaki Park are fantastic. Each cabin has its own BBQ, toilet, shower, air conditioner, and kitchen. The cabins are equipped with enough bedding and dishes for 8 people. They are first come first serve, so come quickly on the day of.

Food & Drinks: Please bring your own food and drinks. We suggest bringing dishes, cups and paper towels, just in case there are more than 8 people in the cabin. KumAJET will provide each cabin with the charcoal and fans needed for BBQing.
