Japan makes it easy to get back to nature with numerous glamping facilities near Tokyo and elsewhere across the country. However, you can’t go wrong with choosing a spot near the iconic Mt Fuji like the new private glamping resort The Villa Glamping Kawaguchiko. Open from November, the resort features five private glamping areas, each with a picture-perfect view of Mt Fuji.
Each of the five glamping zones sprawls out over a spacious 100sqm and they’re all partitioned with high walls, so you can relax in total privacy.
Choose from either four bell-shaped tents or one dome tent, all of which can fit up to five people. Each tent holds two double beds and one sofa bed, which can be used as a couch.
The five private areas also come equipped with a jacuzzi bathtub, dining space, sink, toilet, gas barbecue grills, refrigerator, and wifi. You’ll also get all the usual hotel amenities such as shampoo, conditioner, body soap, toothbrushes and towels.
For a proper camping experience, you’ll have your own fire pits, so you can enjoy a cosy bonfire to keep you warm as the weather starts to cool.
Add a dinner plan to your stay and you'll be provided with all the meat, bread, seasonings, and beverages you need for a hearty barbecue. Additionally, breakfast can also be ordered each morning, providing hot sandwiches, fruit and fresh drip coffee.
The Villa Glamping Kawaguchiko is just an hour-and-30-minute drive from central Tokyo, or you can get there by train. Take the Fujikyuko Line to Kawaguchiko Station and then an additional 16-minute bus ride.
Stays start at ¥35,000 per night for one person. For more information and to reserve, visit the website.
