  • Took the bus from karuizawa station cost 160yen per pax about 10min. But street are bit old and uninteresting. Good just to spend time. The only cool thing is a handmade sneaker shop so cool japanese....  more »
  • We came here rather late, around 5 pm, and most of the shops were closed or closing. We managed to have dinner at an Italian restaurant but that was about all!  more »
