Fujino Kirameki, a Luxury Camp Site at the Foot of Mount Fuji
While camping is a way of life for some people, glamping, a marriage of glamour and camping, mediates between comfort and contact with nature. Having opened in April 2018, glamping Fujino Kirameki blows any notion of camping as a chore out of the water. For a unique experience that brings you close to nature without eschewing luxury or comfort, Fujino Kirameki is the ideal camp. Located an hour and a half from Tokyo and with breathtaking views of the iconic Mount Fuji, this glamping spot has everything you need for a truly relaxing break.
With just twenty cabins accommodating up to six people each, visitors can experience all the comfort of a hotel room, including even spa baths. Wi-Fi allows visitors to keep in touch with the outside world, while views of the mountain from beside a campfire provide the perfect opportunity to disconnect. Most importantly maybe is the camping kitchen, here gourmet breakfasts and dinners are served daily, as well as raw ingredients provided in order to preserve the experience of a BBQ at dusk with friends and family.
