If I had known that the ticket to enter the park and see the cherry blossoms also included access to the zoo, we wouldn't have made the trip from Karuizawa. The park itself is lovely enough, although we were too early for all the cherry...More

A 24-minute Shinano train ride from Karuizawa then a 3-minute walk. Exit Komoro Station, walk to the left then take the underground passage. It costs 300 yen during the day but seems to be free at night during the annual Sakura Festival (桜まつり), with lanterns...More
