Few questions about mini instant grill 2018/2/12 06:07
Hello! I have few questions about mini instant grill in Japan

1) Is it legal, to using this king of portable grill in Japan? For example, on the beach of lake, or just somewhere in nature place? There won't be any problems with laws?

You cannot use it in most places in Japan. You need to look for a place where "barbecue" is allowed. Also, if you are using it in your garden at home, be sure you ask your neighbors to see if they are okay with it.

2) Where this kind of of grill i can buy?

You can usually buy them at a "home center" which is what we call big DIY shops.

3) How this very small grills name in japanese?

Ask for "barbecue konro", and say you want a "chiisai" (small) one.

Sorry, I forgot to write something.

You are looking at a disposable one. Disposable in Japanese is "tsukai-su-te".

Actually, you might find more disposable ones near places where barbecue is actually allowed.

Uco, thank you!

As i understand, for example. Little lake, far away from city, we wanna to use this disposable grill, of course without any trash after, observe fire safety and don't disturb anybody. We don't see any signs there.
So in this case we can use it?

Technically NO. You can use open fire ONLY AT DESIGNATED PLACES.

All you have to do is to ask at a local tourist information counter, or a local police booth, or a local fire department to find out where you can use fire. DON'T use open fire without asking. This is all I could say.

When locals use open fire, they get an official permission from the fire department every time.
EVERY land belongs to someone in Japan, including what you call little lake. Without (1)permission from the fire department (2)permission from the landlord, you can't do it.

The other poster is generally correct, but there are also barbecue sites.

For example, there is the Tamagawa-ryokuchi Barbecue Area. You can bring your grill there, pay 500 yen, listen to a lecture, and you can barbecue as much as you want until closing time.

But you cannot go to a random lake or a random river and build fire without permission. Similarly, you cannot camp without permission. You cannot fish without permission. But if you get permission, the municipal will look after you, and if you suffer an accident they will rescue you by using our taxes.

Oh, sad. In my country we can feel free to using grill almost anywhere. :(
Anyway - thanks for answers. Very useful information!

Why you compare your country with another.
Every country has different rules, it is so simple

Rules have reasons.
By these rules, they can protect human lives and nature from the fire. They are more important than joy.
Agree with justmyday.

I simply thought that the OP was trying to clarify from what standards (s)he was asking the question from. Each country has different standards depending on its environment. Nothing wrong with that.

I don't know, where you find comparing.

And Uco was totally right.

I think it's "Oh, sad. In my country" part. You needed to mention about your country if you didn't intend to compare two different countries.
