Japanese Follows: Very crowded and there are many souvenir shops and restrants for tourists, but few local places. Many shops have a sign written only in Chinese (no Japanese), and I guess their best target is currently Chinese. (It is like Kamakura.) I saw a...More

Good many shops to drop into. Even some good souvenir stamps from the Karuizawa post office. If you have some time, have your name engraved on some high quality chop sticks.
