  • Like someone else close to the street parking is expensive. Cheap parking at a short distance. Most shops open from 10 a.m., early in the vacant shop. Jams and honey-related shops. Once 100 yen surcharge for toilets.

  • Western culture was brought from Villa tribe, Imperial and foreign residents, and is a wonderful Street the living culture of Japan. Bread, jam, Derma, photo gallery, and seeing the scenes live is like. Has seen the age pattern Southeast Asian customers, but blends into the deep pocketed Karuizawa, landscape since ancient times. Squirrel was a nice shop is 500 meters long, but walk around and even sounds good. Cheap parking is behind the post office. Red mushroom is a landmark. We visited during the week of the fall was because it was rainy so turnout even more it was in the summer be erai has.
