Karuizawa Getaway | Winter in Japan | Tokyo Rail Days


On our first day arriving in Japan, Tokyo Rail Days took us to this hidden gem: Karuizawa!

Click the links below to see the rest of the awesome activities we had during this trip:
It took us only an hour and ten minutes to get there with Hokuriku Shinkansen "Asama".

Family portrait! Love how cute mama looks in this picture!

To this Karuizawa Premium Outlet!

Enjoying the breathtaking *partly because it was very cold out there* view before going down there~


OKAY! We're ready to shop but first...

Lunch

Yamahei Restaurant [やまへい]


 Love the restaurant's warm ambience!
..and what a pretty place, eh?

AND BEAUTIFUL, MARVELOUS FOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!! They are famous for their homemade Buckwheat Soba and it really was delicious!

Wouldn't mind having our lunch here every once or twice a week. ;)

Souvenir Court & Sawaya

 Inside this Souvenir Court, there are a lot of interesting things, including THESE giant Pocky and Pretz:


But the GEM in this store is actually this ridiculously delicious JAM!!! #rhymes

Coming to end our visit to this laid back, cozy place, we stumbled across this 'hill' of snow and some kids sledding on it. WE ALSO WANT!!!!!!!!
