5 Best Glamping near Osaka

Have you ever heard of the term “Glamping”? Glamping is a fairly new word that is composed of the words “Glamorous” and “Camping” and refers to camping sites where you can just go without bringing any camping equipment or food for BBQ because the site will have it all ready for you. This style of camping is becoming increasingly popular in Japan, to the point that you will be able to find a glamping spot pretty much in any prefecture in Japan.

In this article, I would like to focus on the Kansai region in terms of glamping sites. I will introduce to you our list of the 5 best glamping sites near Osaka. If you are planning on visiting Osaka or if you live in Osaka, hopefully, you will have some extra time to consider visiting one of these sites to enjoy both the beautiful nature that these places have to offer as well as enjoying the luxurious experience that these places offer.

1. Palm Garden Maishima (Osaka)

Palm Garden Maishima (Osaka)

The first glamping site on this list is located right inside Osaka. Gran Camping Palm Garden Maishima (パームガーデン舞洲) by WBF is a glamping site located right next to Osaka bay. Its location is close to Universal Studios Japan and it is also famous for having a great view of the sunset. Being right next to the ocean gives it extra points as well.

An attractive point about this glamping site is the unique rooms they offer. You can choose between the camping trailer room and the Airstream room (Both of these types of rooms are brought straight from the US). These aren’t rooms you will be finding in many other places in Japan.
