At Achi Village, we are proposing “Active ACHI Outdoor <

“Japan’s No. 1 Starry Sky Ginga Momiji Campsite” is located in a cool plateau area at an altitude of 1,200m, and is a campsite that is also an observation site certified as “the place where the stars can be seen most shining”. The winter in Namai is cold, and it is natural for the temperature to drop below freezing point. That’s why I’m getting something. Air, water, land, snowscapes…the blessings of nature. There are few lights and the air is clear, so you can see the best starry sky in Japan. You can enjoy winter camping and Japan’s best starry sky in the most beautiful season of the year.
