We will have small welcome station there, with a FREE bus ride to the beach area.

We plan to offer a bus ride from Narita to Makinohara, but we suggest you arrive on the 3th or 4th of September. If you arrive before those dates, we cannot offer a bus ride to you. Note: You can bring your shortboard on the train, but it’s not possible to bring a longboard on the trains in Japan.
Accommodation : We are offering FREE Tents on at Shizunami Beach. Each surfer will have one individual tent. (Limit of 30 tents available)
There are toilets, showers, and electricity at the beach for you to use.
If you don't want to stay in a free tent, we will help you to book a room at a nearby hotel, which is 5,500 JPY per person (about $50 USD per person per night)
Meal : We offer FREE meals to competitors: breakfast, lunch and dinner, and some BEERS too!
If you need a visa, please contact me before 23th Aug! I will give you an invitation letter from the Makinohara government.
