Karuizawa trip

While my husband's family was visiting in the beginning of Nov. 2017, we took the both side of the family to Karuizawa for vacation. In that occasion, I ran to Hanareyama in Karuizawa.  It was pouring rain, but it cleared out as soon as I finished running....  Mount Asama. I would climb if I would have been alone. Karuizawa is tourist destination, where attract people in each season. It was a bit crowded for my taste, but accommodating for foregin people. Recommended to take your family members who would not like adventure nor climbing.
