Fujita Kanko’s Nordisk Village Goto Islands – Now Taking Reservations
■The Glamping Facility Opens on September 27th in Kyushu, Japan
July 17, 2018, Tokyo – Nordisk Village Goto Islands, leading Japanese hotelier Fujita Kanko’s stylish glamping facility, will open on September 27th on the Goto Islands in the southern part of Japan, and is now taking reservations by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Located in Kyushu, Southern Japan, the Goto Islands consist of 140 islands and are part of Nagasaki Prefecture. They are known for their unspoiled beaches and breathtaking nature as well as their historic heritage as one of the first Christian settlements in Japan dating back to the 16th century. Known as “Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region,” they are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Nordisk Village Goto Islands is situated on Fukue Island, the main island of Goto, which can be accessed by air (a 40-minute flight from Fukuoka and 30 minutes from Nagasaki) or via an 85-minute express ferry (Jetfoil) ride from Nagasaki Port. It takes approximately 30 minutes by taxi/bus from the Fukue Airport/Port to the glamping facility.
Nordisk Village Goto Islands is built on a closed elementary school site, a five-minute walk from the beautiful Tao beach. The wooden school building has been renovated to function as a check-in area, café & restaurant, and accommodation. There will be ten Nordisk tents around the former school ground, each comfortably furnished with two to four beds. Other facilities will include a communal kitchen. Rates start at 16,000 yen per night/guest including breakfast. Various outdoor activities are available. For more information, visit: https://www.nordiskvillage.jp/en/index.html
Fujita Kanko acquired exclusive rights to operate Nordisk Village locations around Japan last year in a collaboration with Nordisk, a Danish manufacturer of outdoor equipment. The Goto Islands facility is the second Village in the world and the first one in Japan.
Fujita Kanko also launched another more upscale glamping brand “Fujino,” and opened the first facility, Fujino Kirameki Fuji Gotemba, in April near Mt. Fuji.
