Nagakura Shrine

A beautiful shrine nestled in Karuizawa

By Livvy Boote    - 1 min read

The Nagakura shrine in Karuizawa is just a ten-minute walk away from Nakakaruizawa train station. After exploring the Prince Shopping Plaza, the local wildlife on a Picchio eco-tour, and some of the Hoshino hot springs, why not go a little off the beaten track? This shrine is a beautiful insight to the older side of Karuizawa, and is the perfect place to sit down, find some peace and quiet, and take a break from a busy day of walking.

Hi! My name is Livvy and I've been interested in Japan for as long as I can remember. As a budding magazine journalist and photographer, and someone who is in love with Japanese culture, an opportunity to intern in Japan has been a dream.
