Nagano Prefecture Hosts Fist of the North Star Collab Camping Event
Since 2018, manga author Buronson‘s hometown of Saku in Nagano Prefecture has been hosting Fist of the North Star collaboration events. The collabs drum up tourism for the town, as fans flock to sites and experiences inspired by their favorite series. The latest will send you camping at the end of the century, with goods inspired by the manga.
Fist of the North Star: End-of-Century Camp will be taking place at Arafune Panorama Campfield, a campsite on a 1200m-high plateau boasting a beautiful night sky view. As part of the themed package, campers will be able to rent tent pegs, tools, toolkits, and even a tent flap featuring characters and imagery from the series:

There will also be a photo spot featuring a scene from the manga, so you can look like you’re camping with the cast:

The event will run from October 1-November 27. Reservations are now available via the campground’s website.
