We really loved their breakfast in Japanese style.
We had rice and very tasty a lot of side dishes such as grilled fish of the season that was baked over charcoal and plenty of steamed vegetables that were grown in Nagano prefecture.

We had very relaxed time with the good breakfast in the bright natural sun light.

I found funny Country Maam in convenience store, Flavors are “Matcha-latte” and “Shirokuma”.
Faint Matcha (green tea) scent and creamy soft cookies, and condensed milk with sweet bean, mandarin orange and pineapple flavor.
These were interesting to try some.

We had dinner at Bleston Court Yukawatan which was a French restaurant in Hoshinoya.

We are able to enjoy the local products of Karuizawa at the restaurant.
The chefs use the local products to make their original French with their sensibilities.

And, we had a lot of the local fresh vegetables and the gibier of Karuizawa such as canard and venison.
We really enjoyed the French with our both tongues and eyes.

At the end, we got surprised when their desserts were put on the table because they were just amazing, and we were impressed the gorgeous art works.

We’ve stayed at Hoshinoya Karuizawa Hotel.
They’ve made ‘their guest rooms along the river, with runs thought a small valley, conjure up images of villages of old’.

The modern guest room where we stayed was very cozy and comfortable.
Also, we were able to enjoy the view from the large window.
The beautiful views from morning till night gave us very peaceful time.
We had a very good time even though we were just watching the views.

I was passing by this restaurant, and noticed I was hungry.
There’s some Amrican-style dishes for lunch.

I chose avocado cheese burger set.
It was a unique one, using a lot of slightly sour tartar sauce within, very creamy.
I needed so many paper napkins not to spill that.

The Lindt Gold bunny just came out from the shops for celebration of Easter.
The adorable Gold Bunny brings us springtime and big smiles.
