The Karuizawa Prince Shopping Plaza is a large shopping complex with high-end designer brand outlets, sportswear outlets and a variety of cafe and restaurants.
There are many options to choose from, so I usually combine traditional Japanese dishes like rice, tamagoyaki omelette and pickles, and European cuisine like French toast, corn potage soup, and fresh fruit. And the black bread never ceases to astonish me. Overall, a great way to start you day in Karuizawa.
The Karuizawa Prince Hotel ski resort is easily accessible from Tokyo. Located in the peaceful mountain town of Karuizawa, it is a popular area for Tokyo's residents to escape the summer heat or hit the slopes in winter. The ski area offers well-groomed slopes especially for beginners and intermediate skiers. The ski season starts in November with the use of snow machines. The Prince Hotel ski resort is very accessible as it is only a 10-minute walk from the train station. With the Joetsu Shinkansen you can reach the ski areas from Karuizawa in less than an hour.
