The Kuma Van

The Hiace long/ wide is the van we feel is most ideal for vanlife style conversion in Japan. 

It has enough space for a queen size bed and a seperate bed for adult friends/ children.

There is ample room for lounging in the van on a rainy night, a small kitchen with fridge and outside pull draw cooking facilities. 

Beneath the queen size bed is plenty of storage space for luggage and it also holds the water for the sink/ shower at the back. 

¥2.900.000/ tax ex
