The upscale Grand Chariot Hokutoshichisei facility on Awajishima island is a glamping resort in Japan that is known for its wonderful stargazing.
Its location along the 135th longitude line is believed to have given it healing and restorative properties. It boasts 23 individual cabins it calls “cocoons”, one of it being the newly converted Hello Kitty-themed cottage.
Dubbed “Hello Kitty Star’s Cocoon”, it features two beds and can hold two to four people, and it comes complete with all the trimmings bearing Hello Kitty’s image such as a mirror, skylight, wall art, bedspreads, and even bath salts.
Guests can not only enjoy luxurious meals while surrounded by lush nature but also being in the presence of the popular pink-bowed character all day and all night.
