Umekita!!! Glamping & Resort opens in Osaka!

Umekita!!! Glamping & Resort opens in Osaka!

On June 10, 2017 (Sat), "Umekita!!! Glamping & Resort" opens in Osaka. Enjoy a luxurious, urban glamping experience with a festival-like atmosphere and mouth watering BBQ!!

Cafe Company Inc. has partnered with Glamp Inc., publishers of Glamp magazine and producers of various glamping events, to bring you "Umekita!!! Glamping & Resort". This is new, open-air entertainment and food restaurant / festival / resort that will be an oasis in the big city. Located on an undeveloped plot of land north of Osaka / Umeda Stations (hence "umekita"), this temporary venue will operate from June 10 - Nov. 30, 2017.

*We're still working on what's going to happen from December.

Recently gaining popularity here in Japan, glamorous camping - or glamping - is an activity that takes all of the fun of hanging out outdoors, but also includes modern luxuries and comfortable facilities. Rather than have this not-yet-developed plot of land become just another parking lot, we brought this glamping concept to Osaka. There will of course always be delicious barbeque available for those who want to come for a meal, but Umekita!!! Glamping & Resort will also be featuring live music, movies screenings under the stars, daytime yoga, flea markets, fashion shows, and more! Come and enjoy a bit of the outdoors in the middle of the urban jungle!

This facility is brought to you by 4 partners making up the Umekita!!! Glamping & Resort Operational Committee:
