We could never get bored of this electrifying city we call home, but we will admit that Tokyo’s concrete jungle can get a bit overwhelming at the best of times. If you’ve found yourself fantasising about ditching your city apartment to go live in the forest instead, we’ve got the perfect getaway to heal you from your burnout in the great outdoors. And we’re not talking about camping.
At these woodsy resorts just an hour or two from Tokyo, you can soak in open-air onsen as you breathe in mountain air or cosy up to a fire for a barbecue with pals for the ultimate glamping minibreak. No elaborate plans for what supplies to bring, how to pitch a tent by sundown or what food to prepare – glamping is all about having the hard stuff sorted out for you.
