(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 April 27 – October 13】Natural grass site that spreads out at the foot of Mt. Hishigatake.
Luxury glamping is also popular!

The Cupid Valley campsite, which extends to the foot of Mt. Hishigatake (elevation 1192 meters) in Yasuzuka-Ward, Joetsu City, Niigata Prefecture, was reopened this spring.

Cupid Valley is known as a ski resort that boasts abundant snow in winter.  In the summer season, it is a field where you can enjoy a variety of activities, mainly BBQ and camping.

The free sites with a great view, taking advantage of their location on the plateau, are popular for their openness and flat, fluffy grass. In this open space far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, you can enjoy the view of the terraced rice paddies and surrounding mountains as time passes slowly. At night, you can enjoy the star-filled sky.

For those who are not comfortable staying in tents or for families with small children, we recommend the cottage plan. With a total of 16 cottages of two types and 20 campsites, you can choose your preferred accommodation depending on your purpose.
