KARUIZAWA

Found at an altitude of 1000 meters, Karuizawa is blessed with a cool climate and beautiful natural surrounding and as such, has been used as a mountain resort town since the late 19th Century. As part of the old Nakasendo Way, the town retains hints of its original character with long streets of shops, restaurants, and cafes. Karuizawa is very much known as an upmarket resort town, with many wealthy Tokyoites and celebrities holidaying or retaining second homes in the surrounding forests and hills. Most famous amongst these, John Lennon and Yoko Ono used spend summers in Karuizawa making it a popular destination for Beatles fans.

The cooler climate of Karuizawa makes it very popular for those wanting to escape the heat of the cities, with numerous outdoors activities including hiking, tennis, cycling, and golf complementing the numerous shopping and dining options. Winter is no less popular given Karuizawa’s small ski resort which is easily accessible from the town center and very popular with Japanese families wanting a quick and easy get away from Tokyo.
