Karuizawa's Prince Shopping Plaza

Shopping heaven with a beautiful backdrop

Karuizawa is a very new town - until 200 years ago, nobody lived there. So, as an area so recently built for vacationers and those who wanted to build holiday homes, Karuizawa is modern, beautiful, and classy - and the Prince Shopping Plaza is no exception. With free access to a shuttle bus outside the Picchio tourist centre in the Hoshino resort, this shopping centre is the perfect day out for all your shopping needs - including the more high-end ones - and a beautiful place to sit and have coffee.
