Environmental disaster
Apr 2019
At first glance a nice sweeping beach surrounded by trees in a nature reserve, with gentle slope. But the local oyster farmers are apparently allowed to use industrial scale polystyrene floats which obviously degrade into millions of pieces, and also leave thousands of plastic tube offcuts everywhere. It’s a sick joke. It’s not even necessary. Sort it out Japan.

Horrible beach
Jul 2018 • Family
There is no litter elsewhere in Japan, because it is all here. The sea is full of plastic so you cannot swim and Beach is covered in rubbish. Jetski's playing loud music complete the picture. Given that the rest of Japan is so tidy this place is a completely shocking.

Do not go here!

This beach is terrible. It is very dirty and a whole lot of garbage lies on the beach. The grass of the park is dead. The shower house is very old and you have to pay for it, and above of all that we even found a dead bird on the inside. You throw money away if you pay to go here.

Tsutsumigaura Beach Park and Camp Ground
Jul 2017 • Family
Just hanging out for the day or camping all night, Miyajima Tsutsumigaura is a nice spot for both, if you thwart the deer. Come prepared, or come with cash. If you can haul everything you need, ie. come by car, then you can save some money. If you're on foot then everything you need can be purchased at the beach, at a price. Still, it's the only public beach with facilities in the area so probably your best bet if you're looking to get some sun. Whatever you do keep all possessions guarded and stowed away as the infamous Miyajima deer will eat anything. They especially love vinyl bags, cigarettes and mosquito coils.

Go only if you want to rent a bungalow, do not camp here!
Apr 2016 • Couples
I've just been to this camping with my husband as part of our honeymoon and it turned out to be one of the worst experiences ever. We spent 3 nights there (too much on Miyajima, 2 would have been enough) and rented one of their tents. First thing, the inside of the tent, the 2 sleeping bags and the woolly blanket were all quite dirty. Second, there are no hot showers. They charge 100 Yen for a cold shower (??) and 500Yen for a hot one that is inside one of the little houses/bungalows. Toilets were all dirty (and there are quite a few..) and the place looked just like it was abandoned for years. I know that April is not high season, but I think that if you're open you also have to keep the place clean and ready for use. Well, it wasn't. Also, and most important, on the last night it rained very heavily and we woke up at 2 am with half our tent full of water!!! So we had to roughly pack all our things (some wet) and move to another tent, just to realize immediately after that is wasn't any different, so we had to run under the roof of the BBQ/sinks area and try to keep our things as dry as possible. We 'slept' until 6am on the concrete table...but at that point the wind was blowing hard and we were getting all wet so...we moved our stuff in the disabled toilet and just sat on the floor until 8.30 when the first bus was scheduled. A total nightmare. Oh yes, and no English is spoken whatsoever so we didn't even wait for reception to open to try and ask for a refund or a free hot shower because that would have been another, never ending nightmare.

Great place to try out camping Japanese Style
Sep 2015 • Friends
We now understand why people from Japan look a bit confused when camping in the US. Apparently this is a fairly popular camping place in Japan. My husband's family in Tokyo had heard of it and expressed interest in visiting the location. Here it is-imagine a cabin complete with futons, tatami mats, hot water pot, rice cooker, full bathtub, toilet and outdoor grill with plumbed water to put out those hot coals. Kind of convenient huh? There were deer all about at night and in the morning for a view of the wildlife. A nice beach provided options for entertaining kids and the young at heart. Kind of felt like glamping in someone's very expansive front yard.

The camp hosts are very nice and helpful so if you travel like we did, no towels no groceries=no problem. You can buy a towel in the store for $5 and survival food there too! If you require more than hot soup and whatever else they have remaining in the store make sure you bring these before taking the ferry ride over to Miyajima. Also, be warned, taxi's and pretty much everything close down pretty early. We stayed to late at the Torii gate one night, 8PM, and ended up with a long dark walk back.
