As camping comes to the fore as our socially-distanced holiday of choice, Danish studio Third Nature have revealed plans for a fantastical, design-lead campground just outside Japan’s city of Inabe, Mie Prefecture.

Hidden amidst the trees, Third Nature plan to construct a dream-like cluster of sustainably-built cabins, with wooden walls and wonky pitched roofs lifted straight from the pages of a fairy tale. Playfully coined ‘Hygge Circles’, Japanese engineers and sustainability consultants worked with the Scandinavian design studio to conceive a low-impact development that marks a shift towards regenerative tourism.

Set to open in the spring of 2021, Hygge Circles will join a crop of luxury campsites springing up across Japan, tapping into the nation’s inherent love of nature, without sacrificing everyday comforts.
