this time I want to share my first experience snowboarding in Karuizawa. It's really an experience that makes me very enthusiastic.
One of the reasons why I chose to spend my first winter in Japan snowboarding surfing is because it is my first winter. I am very enthusiastic about doing activities in winter, which of course I have never done before. Japan is also in the long holiday season, so there's no harm in spending this long holiday by snowboarding in Karuizawa.
Accompanied by our seniors, me and some of my friends chose Karuizawa because there is one very big surfing spot. We went there by riding the Shinkansen high speed train. This is also our first time traveling by high-speed shinkansen.
Karuizawa is one of the places in Japan that has natural beauty. Karuizawa is located in the Kitasaku district. It was the eastern region of the Nagano area. Apart from presenting truly beautiful natural beauty, Karuizawa is also filled with works of art and the most recognized museum in Karuizawa is The Museum of Contemporary Art Karuizawa.
I live in the Sano area, Tochigi. The distance between Tochigi and Karuizawa is quite far. It takes 1 hour 47 minutes to travel from Tochigi on the high-speed Shinkansen. Actually we could have rented a private car to get there, but because we also have never been on the high-speed shinkansen, we decided to use the shinkansen instead. so we have a lot of exciting experiences that we have never tried before.
There are several alternatives to public transportation to reach Karuizawa. The most widely used is using the Shinkansen high-speed train. In addition, buses are available. It's just that if you use the bus you will use a lot of your time on the trip, so it's better to save by using the shinkansen only. I recommend if you guys travel to Japan someday.
Karuizawa also has a very comfortable climate. Karuizawa's humidity is lower than other cities. When visiting in summer, the climate in Karuizawa is still cool, and in winter, Karuizawa has a very cold temperature compared to other places covered in snow.
