The snow was very deep but the shop keepers and the gardeners at the temple were already out clearing paths through the snow. We had an English speaking Japanese guide leading us around the temple. We walked through the main gates and into the grounds and then to the main hall where having removed our boots we walked up the side towards the main alter before descending some very ...

One such establishment is the Karuizawa Prince Shopping Plaza. As we got off the uncrowded ...
