Fist of the North Star x Arafune Panorama Campfield


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:
