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.

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.

Cheap galleries in Kanto for an exhibition?

Anyone in the art community know of somewhere to exhibit art for cheap (or free)? I'm looking to host a short-term photo show. I'm looking for a very small space (even just a wall is fine) for around 10,000 a day (or less, obviously). Thanks!
