Close to the city center!
Activities you can enjoy at THE FOREST
There are many things you cannot experience in the city.
Hanging out in the nature, relaxing, and enjoying a bonfire and BBQs as well as camping. However, many people might give camping and outdoor activities up by saying, “It takes a lot of time to go out of the city,” “I’m a bit worried about traffic jams if I go there by car,” and “It is hard to carry all the bags by train.” In that case, we’d like to recommend glamping, where you can experience outdoor activities comfortably.
Our facility, THE FOREST, is easily accessible from the city center and lets you have a variety of outdoor experiences in the nature.
We prepare a lot of outdoor activities even beginners can enjoy, so please visit us!

THE FOREST is a glamping facility where you can enjoy the beautiful nature even though it is easily accessible from the center of Tokyo.
THE FOREST, standing in the forest of conifers, is a quiet place far away from the noise of the city.
The facility is surrounded by mountains, and one of the attractions of it is that the views change beautifully each season.
No buildings such as skyscrapers and houses will not disturb you anymore.

There is a very clear river called “Tozawa River” near THE FOREST, and you can find mountain stream fish there.
Mountain stream fishing is done there, and the river is popular among locals, too.
During your stay, you can always hear the sound of the river.
There is a variety of creatures that can live only in a clear river such as mountain trouts. In summer, you can have fun in the river, so please enjoy it with your family!
Next to THE FOREST, there are some public parks such as “Yuu Yuu Park” that’s all covered with grass and “Waku Waku Hiroba” that has a zip-line and long slide.
These parks are very popular among families especially with small kids.
It’s good to enjoy moving your body with your kids and be surrounded by the nature.
In addition, you can rent a car at JR Otsuki Staion, so if you want to see some sightseeing spots in the neighborhood during your stay, it is recommended to do so, too.
