Bird Sanctuary

Visit the wild bird sanctuary near HOSHINOYA, which is one of the largest aviaries in Japan.

Karuizawa Hiking

Set out for an invigorating hike on trails winding through the Karuizawa forest. The temperature is generally noticeably cooler, with considerably fewer tourists in Karuizawa compared to Tokyo, Hakone and Kyoto, making your stay here a welcome contrast from other stops on your itinerary.
