    Nagano Pref. Kitasakugunkaruizawamachi Karuizawa 57-1
    The oldest church in Karuizawa, this was built by Canadian minister Alexander Croft Shaw, a missionary who is known as the “Father of Karuizawa” for helping to introduce Karuizawa as a summer retreat. The house of worship lies in a quiet place surrounded by a grove of trees, and is also popular as a place to hold weddings in Karuizawa. In the back is the Shaw House, his restored vacation house, and people can tour the facility free of charge. Take a bus from JR Karuizawa Station, alight from Kyu-Karuizawa and proceed on foot for approximately 10–15 minutes.

    The church has a feeling of great serenity an simplicity. It is a beautiful historic wooden building. There is a little bit of historical information on the walls.

Nagano Main Areas

around-area-map

Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country's most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
