Hey, hey! School is back in session and the heat has begun to tone down. That means it’s time for the Annual MAJET Aoshima Beach Barbecue and Campout!
Join MAJET at Aoshima Beach on Saturday, September 26 as we gather for one last bit of summer fun! The party will begin at 3:00pm, and we’ll get the barbecue going around 6:00pm. In the morning, we can take a walk over to Aoshima Shrine.
There is no cost to attend this event! Just bring your lovely selves along with whatever food, drinks, and supplies you’ll need to fuel your wild beach antics. MAJET will have some beach toys on hand, but feel free to bring your own!
If you don’t own a grill, never fear! MAJET will be providing grills and charcoal for this event. We also have a limited number of tents and sleeping bags available for use. Because this is an official MAJET event, there will be no rental fee, but equipment will be lent on a first come, first served basis, with priority given to MAJET members.
Here’s what to bring:
- food, snacks, and drinks
- tent/sleeping bag (If you do not have a tent or sleeping bag, please indicate whether you need one on the RSVP form)
- swimsuit and towel
- any beach games you think would be fun to play
- all the genki!
A note on behavior:
Please remember that this is a public space where other people and families may be trying to enjoy themselves. Do not disturb other people or property at the site. Anyone caught doing so will be asked to leave.
Please RSVP by Wednesday, September 23.
While this event doesn’t necessarily require a reservation, filling out an RSVP form will let us know who and what to expect on the day of the event. If you are planning to borrow camping equipment, you MUST fill out an RSVP form. You can find the RSVP form here.
- There is a free public parking lot directly in front of the Misaki Surf Cafe as well as a big grass field one block behind the gas station where it is OK to park.
- There is a paid parking lot under the teal overhead bridge (all day = 500円).
- A little further down the road on the left hand side, you’ll see an old/disused building which has a big gravel parking lot which is free. (In the past there have been no problems, but we’re making no guarantees.) If you’re worried, just use a paid lot.
- If you continue past the white and sketchy hotels, you should notice a big grassy field on the right side of the road. You have to pay, but your chances of finding a space are very good.
*DO NOT PARK IN THE MAIN HOTEL LOTS!!! According to a former JET, “They will tow your cars and insult your mothers.” If you continue past the white and sketchy hotels, you should notice a big grassy field on the right side of the road. You have to pay, but your chances of finding a space are very good.
When you get to the beach, just keep an eye out for us!
