It’s now a National Treasure and you can see its preserved wonders for yourself.

    For snacks, omiyage, and curios, Kyu Karuizawa Ginza Dori is the place to go during the day, but for serious shopping and to get your hands on the top brands at discount prices, then the Prince Shopping Plaza, Japan’s largest outlet shop-ping mall, should not be skipped. This is an open air shopping mall that at times feels more like an amusement park. The mall includes West, Central, and East sections packed with over 200 shops, wide garden areas, and a food court called Aji No Machi which is open until 10pm. Even if you are not looking to shop, it is a great location for hanging out and keeping children entertained. Visit the gar-dens at the centre of the shopping plaza and enjoy the lit up scene. A shuttle bus connects the mall with Karuizawa Station so you can fit in a shopping experience just prior to catching the shinkansen back to Tokyo.

  • Be awed by the Shiraito Falls

    Shiraito Falls

    Shiraito Falls

    The northern section of Karuizawa, or Kita-Karuizawa, holds much natural beauty and Shiraito Falls is an excellent example. Measuring at about three metres in height, and 70 me-tres wide, the impressive falls make for a great spot to fully appreciate the wonder of Karuizawa’s nature. Known as Shiraito no Taki, this name literally translates to ‘the waterfall of white threads’, due to the multiple streaks of white water which seem to form a white curtain as the water comes crashing down. Shiraito Falls are beautiful year round, with the surrounding forest adding distinct colors each season. If you visit in the winter or summer, then the falls are illuminated at night, offering a particularly enchanting experience.

    Stone Church

    Officially named Uchimura Kanzo Kinendo, this church is a whirlwind of inspired design in stone and glass. The layered stone ceilings are more reminiscent of contemporary art than a church but the stone archways are meant to complement its natural setting rather than conquer it. In the evening, the church lights make for some stunning pictures.

    In Karuizawa, leisure and relaxation go hand in hand with the town's hot spring baths. With so many resorts found in this vacation hot spot, there are several on-sen that will have you bathing in soothing water while contemplating nature at close hand. Hoshinoya’s Tombo-no-Yu is probably is at the top of the list for many visitors and rightly so. But if you appreciate an onsen bath all to yourself and a bit off the beaten path, we recommend you head to the bath at Shiotsubo Onsen Hotel. The water here is said to have high wound-healing properties and the view of the rocky garden is very relaxing. Try the onsen between 9pm to 10pm and you are likely to have the bath all to yourself. If you happen to be stay-ing at Koya Backpackers, buy the ticket from the owner at a small discount.
