This countryside farm-to-table concept might be two hours from Tokyo, but it still has plenty of urban strut. At Namegata’s Farmers Village, guests glamp in stylish converted shipping containers and pick “disco” strawberries in the rave-ready greenhouse at night. Ibaraki prefecture is the second-largest producer of sweet potatoes in Japan, so when you’re not exploring the nearby rhino beetle forest or stargazing, you can get up to speed at the sweet-potato museum and tasting bar. farmglamping.namegata-fv.jp; doubles from US$168.
