There are insects, so please avoid exposing as much skin as possible, especially at night (if you are bitten by a painful insect, please contact a staff member). Mosquitoes are also present, so insect repellent, mosquito nets and ointments are recommended.

Rainwear and boots
It rains at least once during the festival each year. It is one of the characteristics of YAMAUTO that the roads become muddy when it rains.

Flashlights, headlamps, etc.
It will be pitch black at night. Make sure you have a light to get back to your tent, otherwise you might get lost or fall into the river. If the sky is clear, the stars and moon are very beautiful.

Tents, sleeping bags (blankets) and wagons for overnight stays
If you are camping, you will be staying in your own tent. Please bring your own tent as there are no tents for hire. Some manual labour is required to bring in the tents. There are several trolleys available, but if you have a trolley, please bring it with you. It can get cold at night so please bring mats, sleeping bags and blankets.

Disposable cups, chopsticks, etc.
