This is one of the most popular autumn colour spots in Karuizawa and shouldn't be missed. Of course, the crowd is horrendous on a sunny day, but that's life and you just have to bite the bullet. There were even couples taking wedding photos when...More

This was a small pond that was very busy even at 6;30 in the morning. Very crowded and although the view was pretty I am not sure it was really worthwile. The walk there was very pleasant though.

It was a last minute decision to go to Karuizawa. We left from Shinjuku, took the Shōnan–Shinjuku Line (湘南新宿), got off at Ōmiya (大宮) and change to Shinkansen. It took us 1.5 hours to arrive Karuizawa which wasn't bad. We then went downstairs and rented...More

This is a favourite spot for wedding photography so the place can be very crowded. Walk round the pond.. it takes just 10 Min or so. There are many lovely picture spots especially at the height of autumn.

The view of pond and changing colors of leaves was really good. The pond reflects the surrounding scenery. Walking around the pond was really refreshing. The best way to get there is by bike.
