Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan's main islands, is a fantastic place to enjoy the great outdoors. There's no shortage of campsites and cottages where you can experience that first-hand, but if you want to get close to nature while enjoying the comforts of a hotel, glamping might be the best option for you.
Here, we'll take a look at some great glamping spots to experience Hokkaido in style and comfort.
We've carefully selected five of Hokkaido's many glamping sites: Muroran, Sapporo, Akai River near Otaru, Makari near Niseko, and Nakasatsunai near Obihiro. These spots are great for couples, families, or friends who want to get back to nature.

Muroran Glamping is an exclusive glamping resort with an adjoining golf course that only allows two groups to stay on any one day. It is about an hour's drive from New Chitose Airport, and popular tourist spots Noboribetsu Onsen and Lake Toya can also be reached in about 30 minutes.

The main and secondary domes are complete with comfortable Simmons mattresses. In the glamping dome not only will you find furniture like tables and sofas, but every detail gives an air of luxury, right down to the stylish dishes and cutlery.

Ingredients for breakfast and dinner are available on-site, too, so you don't need to bring your own. In the dome tent, there is a fridge stocked with seven types of drinks as well as bottled beer and Chu-hai, which are prepared to reflect the number of people staying at no extra charge. You can also order bottled wine and other alcohol on site, but you are not allowed to bring your own.

There is a French restaurant at the golf course, and dinner for glamping guests is prepared by the same chef. But you can also get meat and other ingredients (including dessert) for some light cooking of your own.
For breakfast, as well as a pre-prepared pot-au-feu, you can get ham, sausages, bread, and other delicious items brought to you at your desired time. That way, you can easily enjoy an outdoor breakfast simply by warming it up or cooking it for yourself.

You can also use the daiyokujo (large shared bathing spa) at the golf course during opening hours, and you can use the shower room 24 hours a day.
The sinks are large and easy to use, and there is a powder room in the daiyokujo.
Although on-site services are only available in Japanese, the staff are happy to welcome non-Japanese speakers using translation apps or other translation equipment.
