Karuizawa Playground (Nagano-ken)

On our last visit we found an amazing playground park in Karuizawa, Nagano. Located a short drive from the popular Tsuruya Supermarket lies Yukawa Furusato Park (湯川ふるさと公園). It`s a large and clean park that all families can enjoy, dog-friendly too! Families can be seen walking their dogs, picnicking on the lawn, taking strolls through the garden, playing soccer or badminton in their large, enclosed area, running after their kids on the large playground equipment or relaxing watching the (shinkansen) go by.

Karuizawa is a great weekend getaway (only a 1hr Shinkansen ride from Tokyo). For more details on Karuizawa, read my blog post here.
