The mall is open plan and is rather pretty, well it was when I went in winter and there was heavy snow fall. Because of this, if visiting in winter don't expect it to be warm. I bought a couple of items, but really I could have bought them closer to where I was staying and saved the travel expense; but then I wouldn't have visited another town and seen the sights. I wouldn't travel here for the sole purpose of the shopping plaza, as you can browse it in a couple of hours as it isn't all that big.

If you're tired of running into hordes of people in every Tokyo shopping location, why not come to Karuizawa and run into them there instead? We hadn't really intended to spend much time here, but when it's rainy in the area, a bicycle tour loses a bit of its appeal. All your favorite mid-range shops are here in a fairly pretty, sprawling complex that is undeniably pretty, plopped down SimCity-style onto a massive green open space with a bit of a moat and a few trees to boot. You can find some good bargains here if you enjoy clothes that would not sell in the actual stores at the standard prices, usually for good reasons. This is a good place for unfashionable people-watching (I imagine I am one of them). There is a nice outdoor play area for kids conveniently adjacent to the stands for locally produced beer, and some local products are worth bringing back home to your friends or workplace to prove you went there and were thinking of them enough to get them something.
