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 main area is a free site that is popular for its natural, soft-textured grass that takes advantage of the location of the plateau. In an open space away from the hustle and bustle of the city, time passes slowly and you can enjoy the view of the rice terraces and the surrounding mountains. Another feature of this camp site is that you can stay with your dog.
The kitchen has hot water, so it is comfortable to wash the dishes. The campsite is also equipped with flush toilets for men and women, which are cleaned regularly.
