Some people live for camping, others not so much. But luckily the camping and caravan site Tomarotto provides an experience that has something for everyone.
Located at the mouth of the Shimanto River renowned for its pristine waters, the campsite affords fantastic views of the Kochi coastline and the Pacific Ocean. Again, almost everything can be rented at the campsite. Just be sure to pick up food and drink on route (although there is some food and drink for sale at the main reception area).
The rental tents were simple to put up and comfortable. For those wishing for a more luxurious stay, there are also rental chalets available with ocean views. Barbecue sets and cool boxes can also be rented from the reception area.
The onsen next to the campsite was perfect. After a day in the summer heat, a short walk to the onsen in the evening made all the difference. The feeling of strolling back to the campsite after bathing in the hot spring, a yuzu flavored ice cream in my hand and the stars overhead will stay with me for a long time.
It was lights out at 10pm and the camp fell quiet. Once the lights were out, the stars burst through the sky. Because it was summer, we could see the Milky Way stretch across sky directly overhead. Just seeing those stars in the night sky made me a fan of camping for life.
