My fiance and I left our booking request for campervan hire to the last minute, the night before our flight to Japan in fact(!), but we were fortunate to get a response from Kimi almost straight away whilst the other 2 top listed Japan campervan hire companies didn't bother responding to our enquiry at all. Customer service goes a very long way so full marks there Kimi :) Whilst we requested one of the smaller camper's on account of their apparent cuteness, only a medium sized van was available for our dates and Kimi kindly offered this to us at a 10% discount, which we happily accepted. We communicated with Kimi over our first 2 days in Tokyo to confirm the reservation for later in the week, which required a 30% deposit to be made via paypal. I was initially a bit apprehensive about this as I could not find many reviews on the website, however I appear to have completely overlooked the reviews here on the facebook page. This (mine) is a legitimate review as I am sure are all the others, and if I had read these first I would have had no apprehensions or hesitations around making the paypal deposit. In any case, as soon as I made the 30% deposit I received another confirmation email from Kimi, which put me at ease. The remaining 70% of the fee was available to be made by paypal before pickup, however I elected to bring cash with me on the day of pickup. Kimi's email prior to pickup included directions on how to collect the van from Machida station, which was about 35km distance or 40 mins in public transport commuting from our accommodation in Harajuku. We found the meeting point within the station with ease based on Kimi's instructions, and there he was waiting with the van and we quickly completed the inspection and paperwork nearby. I don't have much to add about the experience of the van itself that hasn't already been commented on. The medium sized van gave us ample room for a medium sized western couple to sleep together. We took the van from Tokyo to central Shikoku and back via Mt Fuji. We found it extremely easy to find free and legal places to park the van at night, and on some occasions gave us close proximity to pay for a shower or go to an onsen. We didn't do any cooking given the affordable and good quality food you can buy from the road stops and convenience stores along the way. At most I think we boiled some water to add to some dried noodles, and only discovered the arms chairs later in the trip. My final advice is to any future campervan hire travellers is to avoid the tollroads to the extent your timeline and wallet allows. We got stung something in the region of $300-$400 from Tokyo to Tokushima, which was a long one stint drive and touched a few different toll roads. It served our purpose for getting to our end point quickly, but was higher than our already high expectations had anticipated. For some reason our return drive was longer, we left Shikoku north via Kagawa and took toll roads all the way to Tokyo via Mt Fuji but it only costed us perhaps half the first leg of the trip or $150-$200.

It took a while but thanks again Kimi. Our trip was awesome and having your van for that first part was even better. Being able to see all those villages in the middle of Japan was just great. We would definitely do it again, it opens so much more possibilities than just going by trains/buses. And that's also thanks to all the 道の駅! Next time, we will definitely go back on the roads with you guys! Cheers Kimi!

Wow! What an awesome way to experience Japan. Nao and Kimi were super easy to deal with and made the start of our Japan road trip easy. The van we rented was great. Plenty of room to throw a few surfboards in the back. We travelled with a 2 year old and the van was ideal. We only camped in it a few nights and drove between accommodations. Days at the beach we great with the room in the back of the van, laid down the seats from time to time for our arvo siestas. Best way to see Japan, stop where you want when you want. Highly Recommended!! Thanks Nao & Kimi!!

Great "turnkey" service .. the van is so well geared that all you need to do is just drive! This was a great way to explore the Japanese Alps and Onsens during the Koyo ( autumn leaves ) season, highly recommended

We had a great experience with Kimi and the campervan. I booked a long way in advance and paid a deposit then, which made me nervous since it was a lot of money far in advance, but Kimi reassured me and answered all my questions. The campervan was great, it has so many useful features, like wifi, a tablet which you can look up all the free sleeping spots and wifi, a second battery so you can use a fan in the night and charge things, mosquito nets for the windows in the night. It was a great experience. And having unlimited kms is great!!! Thank you very much for a great trip Kimi! I'd definitely use this company again!!

My wife and I rented a Camgo camper-van for 15 days. We drove from Tokyo to Osaka through the Kiso valley. We had a wonderful experience. The vehicle was in excellent condition, and well equipped. That on-board WiFi device is a lifesaver! I can recommend the service as Kimi and Nao were helpful, courteous and quick to respond.

We had a great experience with Camgo and Kimi for our 18 day rental. We had made an error in our reservation, which Kimi fixed immediately. The electronics that he provided for navigation and internet were essential to our trip. The apps he provided for finding rest areas and onsens were very helpful. Highly recommended!

We had a really good experience with Kimi and Camgo. We had everything we needed in the van and we didn't have any problem. You have unlimited wifi in the van and you can easily find places to go and to spend the night. Japan is a wonderful country and I hardly recommend you to go.

We were in trouble when arriving in Japan, and we found Camgo and Kimi. He gave to us great services, quick answers and solutions, for a little more than two month rental, for traveling all arround Japan with a 3 members familly. In the futur if we come back to Japan, we definitely rent again from camgo ! Every necessary things for camping was include, even more like Pocket wifi who give you the possibility to be connected to internet everywhere at anytime. Thank you Camgo for saving our road trip !

Had a fantastic experience campervan-ing around Japan with Camgo. Kimi was so quick to respond and help us out :) :) With the option to avoid tolls via the GPS and the app that helps you find onsens and sleeping spots (all included with the van) we found this option a great way to see Japan!

Our van came equipped with everything we needed and more! Having travelled japan by rail on our last visit I can definitely say that campervan is the best way to see the real Japan, and the Camgo staff are super helpful and super nice. Thanks again Kimi, we'll be back!

Excellent van rental service! Kimi was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions. The van was super comfortable and came with all the necessities for van life. The rental even included a wifi router and iphone stocked with apps for finding rest areas, gas, directions, onsens, ect. Very convenient to have! Would defiantly rent from camgo again! Picking up and dropping off the van was also fast and easy as we chose the time and location making it very convinent.

My fiance and I recently travelled by campervan around Japan for one month. It was an incredible experience and one we will remember with very fond memories! By camper is the way to travel if you want to see and experience unique parts of Japan. It's also very cost effective. In regards to Camgo, we highly recommend this business. We did a lot of research before coming to Japan, Camgo is the cheapest company and the service provided is top notch! Kimi the owner has done much camper travel abroad and understands the camper experience. His vans are fitted out with everything to make your journey comfortable including very nifty applications that help you to find your way including to Onsens and free rest areas. Kimi speaks excellent English and we even contacted him with help speaking to local Japanese people who did not understand English! He is extremely prompt and kind with customer service. In short, look not further in your search for a car or camper, Camgo is your company! Thanks so much Kimi!!

Had a great 3 week tour around Japan in the Camgo Campervan. Kimi was a very helpful communicator so we did 3000 kms without a problem. He gave us all the information we needed and constant wifi connectivity allowed us to navigate via Google maps. I highly recommend Camgo to anyone wishing to get off the expressways and explore the countryside and all it has to offer. We had a seamless pickup and drop off with Kimi showing up on time...his most agreeable manner made the whole experience one we will certainly remember with affection. Thank you so much Kimi...your 2 Austalian friends.

Did one week in a Camgo van and absolutely loved it. Japan is a great place to see by campervan. You have free sleeping spots, onsens for showers and courteous fellow drivers. The van itself was super practical (you don't want anything bigger with the narrow roads around japan) with built in deep cycle battery (for charging at night), all sorts of cooking gear and a good sized bed (im 2 m tall). On top of that Kimi was great, super quick to respond to emails and always friendly with many suggestions. Camgo gets my warmest recommendations. Arigato!

We traveled Japan with a Campervan from Tokyo to Osaka in 15 days. Japan is a great country to travel by camper if you are looking for a 'off the beaten path' tour. If you're not native Japanese make sure you book the wifi provided by Kimi, absolutely unmissable for tracking down campsites, restaurants and driving directions. Kimi of Camgo is a great guy. You can definitely rent a campervan with him, ask him for tips and the 1 week and 2 week example route so you don't miss out on any highlights.

We recently returned home from Japan where we rented a CamGo Campervan for 11 days. It was one of our most treasured holiday experiences. Kimi was always quick to respond to any questions and was full of suggestions, often sending links to helpful apps/websites to help us on our journey. The Nissan Serena mid-size camper was clean, comfortable, roomy, fully equipped and ran well. Not only were free extras included (GPS, cooking equipment, table, chairs), Kimi has put together a folder with information on traffic rules, traffic signals, michi no ekis, maps, and reviews on helpful shops/restaurants you see along the roadside. Our Bible during the trip! My husband and I highly recommend CamGo. After a bad experience with another Japanese Camper Company, CamGo saved the day and did so with a friendly smile. Thank you so much Kimi and Yukari! Can't wait to visit again next year!

Camgo were so very welcoming and helpful. They offer such a great price, so many extra amenities at no extra cost, and didn't even charge us extra for returning the car late when we got lost. I would absolutely use their services again, they are lovely and worth looking up! Thank you Kimi!

I just spent 15 days cycling in Japan with Camgo campervan. Great price for incredible service. I can't think of a better way to visit Japan. The van was in very good condition and the Camgo team was very reactive and helpful. Thanks you so much !
