Review of Karuizawa Picture Book Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/01/01 絵本好きにはたまらない。
すごい数の絵本が読み放題です。腰を据えてじっくりと読むことがます。森にたたずむ建物も素敵な雰囲気です。
Reviewed:2019/09/01 絵本もいいですがポールスミザーさんのピクチャレスクガーデンが見ものです
欧米の絵本の歴史を学ぶのもいいのだが、ここの隠れた見どころはポールスミザーさんのピクチャレスクガーデン。軽井沢に自生する植生を生かした、英国本場のナチュラルガーデンが楽しめます。
Reviewed:2019/08/11 観光と言うよりじっくり親子で時間を過ごしたい空間です
弁当かおやつ持参で子供にじっくり絵本を読み聞かす場として楽しみたい空間です。庭園としてもすごくレベルの高いところなので緑の季節はそれも楽しめます。

          Nagano Areas

          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.
