5 Best Glamping near Mt.Fuji
Most popular Glamping sites where you can see Mt Fuji
Wouldn’t you like to know what it is like to camp in Japan? I know many travelers also like camping, and although Japan is not very known for its camping experiences, there are some sites with incredible views while also having easy accessibility. However, “the biggest concern would be to prepare all the tools and equipment”, you might think.
For those who have thought of this, let me introduce to you “Glamping”. Glamping is a relatively new word that has the meaning of the words “Glamorous” and “Camping”, and it is becoming more and more popular in Japan. There are many glamping sites across the country that offer the same kind of nature-bathing experience just like when you go camping, but with a luxurious touch, that being, having a large room with all the amenities and AC, having all the equipment and food ready at the site, and some other services that will make your stay even more special.
In this article, I would like to introduce to you one of the most popular areas for glamping which is near Mt Fuji. Needless to say that the reason for the popularity comes mainly from the spectacular view you will have. But there are many places that offer more than this. Here is a list of our picks for the 5 best glamping sites near Mt Fuji. In this list, I will share with you 4 sites in Yamanashi prefecture and one site in Shizuoka prefecture.
