Welcome to Inaka (the country side)
I live in a rural area between Kofu and Shizuoka city. With relatively easy access to the Minami Alps, Fuji 5 lakes, Fuji city and Izu. I say I love where I live because I'm 4 hours from the Norhtern Alps and 4 hours from the best beaches on the Izu peninsula. Needless to say I do a lot of driving.
My town has easy access to a lot of great onsens, I still haven't been to them all myself yet. I also have access to a lot of great hikes and I live abut 15k away from some great rafting companies on the Fuji river. One of them does mountain bike riding down Mt. Shiratori and that's high on my list of things to do.
Why come and stay with me? Well, as much as I like my town, I also love to travel and road trips. If there is somewhere you want to go but you're not sure about how to get there, it looks difficult to access or there isn't a lot of public transport ... Message me with your proposal, I might be up for driving you down to camp in Izu, or driving around to Kiso to walk the old Edo highway, or explore sake breweries in Nagano, or heading up to Gunma for some full on adventures.
I've written a lot about my town on my profile so please check if this sounds like something you might be interested in.
I'm going to be traveling through a lot of August myself but I'll be back and in September I'm planning a massive rafting and camping even for the end of September. I'll update this post when I get back with more details.
