The Escape to Karuizawa
During Golden Week, I decided to get away from busy Tokyo by going to Karuizawa. If you want a change of air from the busy Asian city, I certainly recommend Karuizawa. Only about an hour from Tokyo with the Shinkansen bullet train, this area of Japan feels more like Europe.
A must do in Karuizawa is to rent a log house with your friends and bring some tennis rackets. There are like tennis courts everywhere.
