Why not explore Karuizawa, a famous upper-market mountain resort welcoming about 8 million visitors a year? You will walk around the Old Town area with a local guide. The destinations include historic lanes and paths, one of the area's famous churches, areas with holiday villas, Karuizawa Ginza Street and more! You will experience a cafe break, which is a must when you come to a resort area.
What to Expect
By walking with a local guide, you will make a lot of interesting discoveries and have new knowledge about a famous resort town, Karuizawa. You will enjoy walking along leafy beautiful lanes which are difficult to smoothly find without a guide. A short break at a cafe will be a relaxing and cozy time. Usually we stay in a cafe for about 30 minutes. Other than that, we basically keep walking while sometimes stopping at historic buildings or sites for about a few to ten minutes for each.
Apply by 3 days before the guiding day. Earlier is better to find an available guide. Thank you.
We can confirm your booking after checking availability of our guides. We recommend early booking, like one to several months before the tour day to increase a chance to send our guide, but we can accept a booking up to 3 days before the tour day. We normally meet our customers at Karuizawa Station or Naka-Karuizawa Station (for Karuizawa History Town Walk, we start at only Karuizawa Station). If you meet our guide in other places than the two stations, such as your hotel lobby or other train stations, please note we may need to ask you to cover transportation cost.
