KARUIZAWA

Karuizawa is one of the oldest and most popular summer resorts in Japan.

Karuizawa is one of the oldest and most popular summer resorts in Japan. It has thrived and been recognized as a beautiful summer resort since a Canadian missionary of the Anglican Church, Alexander Croft Shaw (1846 - 1902) built his summer retreat here in the late 19th century after he was attracted by the beauty of nature of the surrounding area. It was at a tennis court in Karuizawa where the then Crown Prince Akihito, the present Emperor, met Miss Shoda Michiko, the future Empress.
