Golden week in 2018 year! ! What is the congestion situation? What?

Which day is crowded? What? Therefore, looking at the vacancy calendar of Jalan net which is a major hotel reservation site, the situation is as follows. * 4 Month 8 The availability of the date and time point

Because it is a bit hard to see, looking at the graph, it looks like the following.

The peak of consecutive holidays is predicted to be around 5 days and 3 days of the 4 month, and congestion is also predicted for the previous 4 month, 28 day, and 29 day.

If your work is completely closed from 4 month 28 day to 5 month 6 day, it may be correct to go out between 4 month 30 day to 5 month 2 day.

To travel golden week comfortably

Let's depart 2 hours earlier than you think, so that you will not get frustrated with journeys, traffic jams!
Especially, those who are considering lodging trips must go early near the accommodation facilities and do not sightsee, the roads are crowded and the dinner time goes far beyond .... What happens often. Lunch and lunch will also fail to eat while looking for crowded shops. Because the tragedy that tends to happen, it is recommended to arrive and line up before the target shop opens.

✓ Departure is 2 hours ahead of schedule. ◎ Any momentum to eat breakfast at your destination
✓ Let's finish the toilet before departure!
✓ In case of accommodation, play early before going to accommodation nearby
✓ Lunch is lined up before shop opening
✓ Do not get frustrated even in traffic jams, keep safe driving in mind

Which spot do you recommend for Golden Week?

From here onward, it will be totally personal subjectivity, but I personally recommend that you go out to the nearby place as much as possible if planning in the immediate future as a method of choosing a place to go for Golden Week recommendation. After that, it seems not to be congested. So I will pick you up and introduce it.

1. "Just a nice countryside"

Until now, there may have been many people not recognized as a tourist spot so much, Kamimoto prefecture Mamoru Castle area. Actually, it is "just a good country" where fertile cafes and activities are also fulfilled although rich nature remains. It's perfect for distance from Kumamoto city as well as from Masuki IC, so it's perfect for going out for Golden Week.

Actually, since there are many articles in the Ueshiro area at Otaru and Kumamoto, it would be greatly appreciated by all means.

2. Sanbayama village
Sometimes there are almost no signals, so the Golden Week is almost congested. It's a great place! I recommend the following 4 places.

● Ikeyama water source

It is a source of water that ranked first in the "Japan's Water Source" ranking!

There is also footbath (foot water?) That can enjoy water.

● Yamabuki water source

Stop in the parking lot and walk on such a promenade. It is about 40 minutes in round trip.

The pond where the water of the water source accumulates in the back. It is mysterious.

● Sedan

Rather than sightseeing spot, although it is a rice field, you can see the rice paddies spread out like a fan and the Aso Goryakuda in the back. It is on the way to Yamabuki water source, so it is the scenery you want to see by all means.

3. Go Go Village
Personally I am interested in Historia Terrace, I would like to go (personal desire)
