Whilst visiting Japan, you have to try the sweets; their pastries and cakes are beautiful, light, deliciously sweet, and have flavours that are unique to Japan. Peters Cake Boutique in Karuizawa is around a 10-minute drive from the Hoshino resort and Picchio centre, so if you want to find somewhere new for afternoon tea to bring back, or sit outside, Peters absolutely must be visited - the cakes are too beautiful to pass up. You go in thinking you'll only buy one, and come out with a whole box!

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. My photography page (Far Away Photography) has an album dedicated to my last trip to Japan, in March 2014, and I have a blog, 'To Boldly Write' (justkeeptrekkin.wordpress.com). I hope you enjoy my work, as much as I enjoy creating it!
