Karuizawa Car Trip

Filed under: — Andy @ 2:38 am

Last weekend a friend from school invited me to go on a car trip to Karuizawa. I had not been to Karuizawa yet, and it was by car so I went along for the ride. Karuizawa is a bit far in Nagano prefecture and is famous for beautiful fall colors among other things.

The first place we stopped was for lunch to eat ‘kamameshi’ which is famous in the area.

After that we drove towards the big volcano to a place called ‘oni oshi dashi’ which translates into ‘the devil pushed out’. I think it’s called that because in that area the landscape is like that of a volcanic trash pile with big black rocks piled up everywhere.
