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?

Hi Arisa,

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.
