Guide

Karuizawa, Nagano, Japan travel guide including a guide to bird watching in Karuizawa.

Karuizawa is a well known mountain resort town located in the prefecture of Nagano-ken in the foothills of the Japanese Alps. Anyone who has ever contemplated birding in Japan will undoubtedly be aware that the area is renowned for its excellent bird watching. It certainly is a beautiful area with some gorgeous temperate evergreen forest. Rumour has it that in recent years there has been a decrease in bird numbers and we did find it slow going at times – this may have had more to do with timing on our part though. A lot of birds were obviously sitting tight on their nests in late June!
