The Japanese Camping Phenomenon: An Escape from the Mundane

According to Sakai Hiroaki, a respected authority on Japanese camping and Secretary General of the Japan Auto Camping Federation, the first significant autocamping trend emerged in the 1990s. Those who were children during that era have now grown into adults, rekindling their passion for camping and playing a pivotal role in today's camping boom. Other contributing factors include the increasing popularity of outdoor music festivals, where camping is a part of the experience, and camping magazines that provide trendy fashion and interior ideas tailored to modern tastes.

Japanese campers seek to break away from the ordinary during their camping escapades. Campsites that offer opportunities to immerse oneself in Japan's rich natural environment while participating in "outdoor classes" covering subjects such as cooking, nature exploration, or canoeing have garnered immense popularity. Recent years have also witnessed the emergence of diverse camping options in Japan, including glamping, where individuals enjoy the comfort of spacious, luxurious tents or mobile cabins for a more hotel-like experience. The number of autocampers has seen steady growth, climbing from 7.2 million in 2011 to 8.6 million in 2019 (as per the Japan Auto Camping White Paper 2020, published by the Japan Auto Camping Federation).
