Asahi Nature Highland
This campground has family lodges, spaces for tents, BBQ areas, and more. There's plenty for camping pros and first-timers alike to enjoy!
See weeping peach blossoms in the spring, and the deep crimson leaves of rare hananoki maples in the fall.
All sorts of hands-on classes are offered, and campers can enjoy these as well as sports activities such as tennis during their stay. (Note: Some classes require reservations.)
The grounds also allow sledding in the winter. The slopes are safe even for small children, making it a popular spot for families to play in the snow. There is a moving walkway installed on the slope, so the little ones can sled their hearts out without getting tuckered out on the way back up to the top.
Have a great time in any season at Asahi Nature Highland.

Attaka no Sato Sanage Onsen Hotel Kinsenkaku
Sanage Onsen is surrounded by flowers all year round. In spring, the area turns into a cherry blossom garden, and in the rainy season, it becomes a pallet covered with colorful paints of hydrangeas. The hot summers after the rains bring vibrant green trees and big, bold flowers, while fall brings fiery autumn leaves. In winter, it rarely snows, so a variety of citrus fruits grow bright orange on the trees, and with the start of each new year come early-blooming cherry blossoms. The beautiful garden whose colors never fade, and the koi carps in the pond, are waiting to welcome you.
