Hi, I’m planing to go there with my own tent for camping at Konashidaira on 10-12 August 2019. Just heard that it will be so crowded during that time. Can anyone describe how full it is? How that bad?
Thanks for your question about visiting Nagano.
I haven’t personally stayed at the Konashidaira Campgrounds before, but according to their website, it is incredibly busy during the Obon holidays (Aug. 13 to 15th). Since Monday the 12th is also a holiday, it is very likely that there will be huge crowds during the weekend before Obon as well.
If you’d like to ask about other places to stay in Kamikochi, I recommend contacting Kamikochi directly through their English language Facebook page.
I hope that helps answer your question.
