Cycling around Karuizawa

Enjoy a pleasant breeze on a rental bicycle

By Tomoko Kamishima    - 2 min read

Karuizawa is a beautiful highland town situated at the foot of Mt. Asama. Cycling around the popular tourist destinations in Karuizawa is a good way to enjoy the nice, cool, pleasant breeze. There are a few rental bike shops near JR Karuizawa Station. They will give you a cycling map, some useful information about recommended destinations, nice restaurants, and whatever else you need. The places I introduce in this video (and some links) are listed below:

  1.  Karuizawa Kogen Church
  2.  Stone Church
  3.  Hoshinoya (Hoshino Resort)
  4.  Sezon Museum of Modern Art
  5.  Kumoba-ike Pond
  6.  Former Mikasa Hotel
  7.  St. Paul’s Catholic Church
  8.  Kruizawa Shaw Memorial Chapel
  9.  Kyu-karuizawa Main Street
  10.  Manpei Hotel
  11.  Katuizawa-kai Tennis Court

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS:  An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here.  日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
