Kyukaruizawa Ginza, Karuizawa-machi
(3.1/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Saunter down the neatly kept Kyukaruizawa Ginza, the main commercial street of the summer resort town. The shopping area grew extensively during the 19th century, with many stores from the country's main cities opening branches here, complemented in the 20th century with the building of several Western-style hotels and storefronts. Admire the mix of architecture during a walk down the historic street, and pop into the many boutiques and souvenir stores to browse the array of finely crafted garments and trinkets available here.

  • I went on a Saturday afternoon. It was crowded with many people. Some shops into the 11-and had signs of closing. I think convenient places to buy souvenirs in Karuizawa. Many suites.

  • Speaking of former staple of Karuizawa sightseeing, lined Karuizawa Ginza souvenir shops. Regardless of weekday holidays anyway now that old light (kyuukaru) is known, and is crowded with many people. Jam shops, sweets shops, and in the fashionable shops, there was a feeling of luxury.

  • And was there on a weekday and the streets deserted. When I visited a few years ago tourism tourists was covered, and a little bit sad but Asano shop bought bread and eating out Mikado coffee soft and enjoyed. Jam is located in the back jam Kobayashi. Techniques learned from France in the past, is still making jam. Nice storefront is the owner.
