Slightly off-topic, but since we discuss swimming and camp grounds, here's my question: Does anyone have favourite barbecue spots, preferable somewhere near water (river, beach) and/or out in nature?

I've had beach barbecues on the Miura peninsula, but otherwise little experience with barbecues outside the garden. I heard that barbecues along the Tamagawa were technically illegal. I had a good time at Tim's barbecue on the Arakawa, but would like somewhere less crowded on a weekend.

Can be just about anywhere, we'll actually be going by car (2 families in two cars)... :eek:

The Kawasaki side of the Tama River is fine for BBQs. The most popular spot is Futako Shinchi, but they charge about 500 yen a person. Under the bridge at Shimo Maruko or Noborito should be free and legal though.

Also, there are great BBQ spots along the Akigawa (en route to Tomin-no-mori) and also along the road up to Nokogiriyama (off the road leading to Kazahari-rindo, not the one in Chiba).

Saw a great place at Hanno this weekend. Not crowded, right down by the river. People were swimming, grilling fish etc. Very pleasant.
