Any good campsite or campground with lake around Tokyo?

I am trying to find a place for camping for this summer, a campground with some entertainment like hiking, cannoning, fishing and swimming. I only have a tent and don't really want to bring too much stuff, it would be great if I can rent some of the gear at the campground. So far I find a campsite near Tama-Center (http://www.okutamas.co.jp/hikawa/) similar to what I am looking for, any advice?

    Did you ever find somewhere!? FWIW, if you are still interested and willing to commute to Chichibu in Saitama it is a great area to camp. Here is one camp that comes to mind: Mangan Village is a "super camp" site that is very user friendly in a beautiful wooded area about 20 kilometres from Hanazono Interchange on the Kanetsu Expressway. ☆Facilities include: Toilets Bath (Onsen see below) Shower Coin Laundry Cooking equipment Shop (sells necessities for BBQ) Vending Machines Playground equipment ☆Activities on site or very nearby include: Fishing Hiking Cycling (Mountain Bikes) Crafts and events for kids Canoeing Farm Fruit Picking ☆Services include: Day camp Free gloves Rubbish bins You can rent a hammock, one touch tent and other equipment Dogs allowed ☆Accommodation includes: Cottages Trailer House (Tent site) Reception is quite bad in the area for AU and Softbank phones, but Docomo is fine. Nearby facilities include: 10 minute drive to 7-11 convenience store 10 minute drive to Yaoko Supermarket 1 minute drive to the onsen Nearest hospital only a 8 minute drive away. (I have no affiliation to this company or website!)

    Thanks for the suggestion, so far the campsite near Tama-Center is the only one I know that is near Tokyo that can easily access without a car. Other places are either too far or don't have any activities within the campground.

    A good place to camp would be those where you can you Mount Fuji like Hakone and Sayama Hills in Saitama.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.
