2016.10.09

Visiting an onsen (hot spring) is a classic activity while traveling in Japan. However, a new type of luxurious camping known as “glamping” is becoming popular. The word is made up of ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’. It is a new style of luxury camping where guests can enjoy the outdoors at well-equipped facilities without having to prepare any camping goods themselves. Let us introduce some of these up-and-coming facilities in Japan.
