Lots of restaurants and places to eat, just off the "main drag". Art galleries and souvenir shops round out the venue. It's convenient if you're in Karuizawa on Ginza street, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go there.

Church Street 是輕井澤區內的商場, 由銀座通往前行, 便會見到Church Street牌, 轉入去其實是個商場, 內裡店舖不多, 好快逛完, 穿過商場後便是St. Paul Catholic Church, 經過時可以逛一逛.

Lots of shops in here. A little pricey but good for a look around. Toilets have a charge of 100 yen!

Hip and modern design, this strip is only for foot travelers. We enjoyed the Italian restaurant for lunch and looking around the quaint "Cowboys and Indians" shop. There's a historic Catholic church at the end of the street which is well worth the time to...More

Church Street is one of the nicest buildings in Kyu-Karuizawa Ginza, about 15-20 minutes walk from Karuizawa Train Station. You won't miss it once you are on the main street of Kyu-Karuizawa (old Karuizawa). If you lose your way, like I did, to St. Paul's...More

Cute, quaint, but only slightly more interesting than any other street with souvenir shops. Not bad but not over-the-top thrilling. Second floor has a restaurant where you can eat with your dog (if that's important to you).
