"Karuizawa, mountain town at its finest" Kyu-karuisawa by Cubiche
Kyu-karuisawa Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 17 photos
Karuizawa is a famous getaway for the Japanese. In fact, even the royal family comes here to get away from the stress of daily life. And yet for being such a mecca of hot shots, Karuizawa has a very rustic and humble appeal. It is quaint, but charming. Unlike its counterparts in Gstaad or St. Moritz, the ritz and glitz here is understated. It is a wonderful place for all seasons. In winter, it becomes a wonderland, with plenty of skiing and other winter activities. In spring, the budding vegetation makes it look like an oasis away from city life. In the summer, it is the perfect place to cool off from the damp heat that plagues Japan. In autumn, the foliage colors are simply breathtaking. The people are very pleasant and charming. Also, for those interested, there is plenty of golfing there too. And a must in Karuizawa is trying all of their local jams. They have an incredible variety of jams, and they are delicious.
This town has plenty of hiking trails to do in the summertime. The greenery is astounding, and the temperature is cool... more travel advice
