Karuizawa was first popularised as a mountain resort area by foreign residents of Japan in the late 1800s. These days it is a popular destination for both foreign and Japanese travellers alike. With tons of activities on offer from skiing, tennis, shopping and hiking, this is the perfect place for a family trip. For those looking to escape the city for a short break, its proximity to Tokyo - just 70 minutes on the shinkansen from JR Tokyo Station - makes it an easy escape to the beautiful mountain landscapes of the Japanese countryside.
