Campground Guide -Rokuya Sanso Handsfree Camping-
(Yasuzuka Ward, Joetsu City)



Focusing on camps that have become increasingly popular in recent years, we are doing our best to publicize the campgrounds that are open in the Joetsu area (Joetsu City, Myoko City, Itoigawa City).  Not only detailed information on each campground, but also spots recommended by the editorial department will be posted.  It’s good to have fun with your family, or to enjoy your time as a solo camper.  Why don’t you go out to play in the great outdoors?

【Open July 22-August 25】”Handsfree Camping” in the garden of Rokuya Sanso, which is surrounded by rice terraces

“Rokuya Sanso,” is an accommodation facility located in Hosono, Yasuzuka Ward, Joetsu City, Niigata Prefecture.  This area is rich in nature.  “Rokuya Sanso” has started a glamping service where you can enjoy camping without preparation in the garden on the premises.


“Rokuya Sanso” is a guest house run by Hosono Village. It offers guests dishes made with Koshihikari rice harvested from the rice terraces, and other local ingredients.

In order to let people enjoy a relaxing moment without being dense with the Corona Disaster, we have started glamping, where people can enjoy camping with nothing in hand. Please apply in advance by  fax (025-592-2698), email (info@hosonomura.net), or homepage (https://www.hosonomura.net/).


Glamping is limited to 3 groups per day. Room rates are 9600 yen per adult, 8300 yen per elementary school student, and infants on request. Dinner and breakfast are included, and rental of a tent, mat, sleeping bag (without pillow), lantern, mosquito coils, bathing towels, and other camping equipment is included.The tents are already in place, so there is no need to go through the tedious assembly process.

Glamping users can use the baths and toilets at Rokuyasanso for a comfortable stay.Although barbecues cannot be enjoyed, campfires can be enjoyed at night. If you cannot stay in the tent due to bad weather, you can sleep in a room at Rokuya Sanso.Also, if you cannot stay in a tent due to stormy weather, you can sleep at Rokuya Sanso.
