Thanks to the new normal with social distancing, glamping is trending again. And with the weather cooling down and autumn fast approaching, we’re ogling the best glamping sites around Japan to spend our next holiday. One of the latest glamping destinations in the country is Nasu Rindoko Lake View, an outdoor family park in Tochigi.
Plans typically start at an affordable ¥4,000 per person for a night in one of the four igloo-shaped tents. Top up another ¥1,500 per person and you’ll enjoy a breakfast of homemade bread, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and yoghurt. You can also opt for a one-night-stay plus breakfast and lakeside barbecue priced from just ¥10,000 per person.
Nasu Rindoko Lake View is perfect for those who don’t want to stray too far from modern comforts. Rather than being deep in the wilderness, you get the best of both worlds at this glamping site where you can enjoy the scenery of Nasu Lake and the surrounding mountains of Tochigi while having a host of adventure-packed activities at your fingertips.
Kids can take go-kart lessons and ride on a ‘dinosaur’. Adults looking for a boost of adrenaline can traverse a 200-metre zipline across the aforementioned lake. The park is also ideal for animal lovers as there are up-close encounters, where you can milk dairy cows, feed goats and take alpacas for walks.
For more information, check out Nasu Rindoko Lake View’s website for activity schedules and reservations.
