Night Sky Photography at Kamikochi, Nagano

Truly, one of my favorite places in Japan is Kamikochi. And there is no better way to breathe in the beautiful nature than camping under the stars in my opinion.

After 2 nights of rain and cloudy night skies, I had almost given up all hope of seeing the stars… until the 3rd night. After being woken up by a full bladder, I finally gave in, and with torch in hand, I decided to leave the comfort of the tent and make my way through the dark to the campsite restroom.

To my amazement, I saw the crescent moon shining brightly over the trees, and stars peeking out through the clouds.

本当に、日本には私の好きな場所は上高地です。星の下でキャンプすることほど美しい自然を楽しむ方法はない。

雨や曇りの夜空がニ晩続き、私はほとんど星空を見ることを諦めていた。しかし、3日目の夜、トイレに行きたくなって目が覚めて快適なテントを出て懐中電灯持って暗闇の中を歩いた。

驚いたことに、木々の上に明るく輝く三日月と雲の間から顔を出す星が見えた。

I made my way to the restroom and hurried back to my tent and grabbed my camera. As I walked back, although anxiously I thought I felt a few drops, to my happiness, the clouds seemed to drift away to make way for one of the most beautiful night skies I’ve ever seen.

トイレに行った後、カメラを取りにいそいで戻った。途中、雨が降りそうで心配だったが、幸い雲が

晴れて美しい夜空が目の前に広がった。

I woke my still sleeping camping companion, and we wandered through the dark in amazement at the scenery and managed to take a few more shots before a thick mist descended upon the campsite.

テントでまだ寝ている友達を起こして、驚くべき景色が広がる暗闇の中をさまよった。キャンプ場に霧が降りる前に何とかもう少し写真が撮れた。
