What is Glamping?
Glamping is the activity of camping with some of the comforts and luxuries of home. It is where stunning nature meets modern luxury. It is a way to experience the untamed and completely unique parts of the world without having to sacrifice creature comforts.
The first glamping resort was established by Hoshino Resort in October, 2015. Glamping facilities have become particularly popular in Japan these years.
Why Glamping now?
The way we travel has changed. We want to explore on our terms and immerse ourselves in local culture, and we no longer just want to simply witness nature, we want to live in it.
A fusion of glamour and camping, glamping is a way to authentically experience the most awe-inspiring locals around the world.
Style of camping is changing
According to the government policy of preventing pandemic of COVID-19, following three things should be avoided in our daily life.
Avoid the “Three Cs”!
