The only city in the world to have hosted both summer and winter Olympics, the resort town of Karuizawa-machi boasts clean air, impressive mountain scenery, and many outdoor activities and hot springs. Its laid-back downtown area standing at an elevation of 1,000 m (3,281 ft) features chic restaurants and cafes amidst larch and birch trees, all against the backdrop of Mount Asama, one of Japan's most active volcanoes. A vacation in Karuizawa-machi offer visitors numerous upmarket leisure activities like bowling, cycling, horseback riding and golf; many wealthy Tokyoites and foreign traders have second homes here. Take some easy hikes to reach nearby falls and ponds, and when you get tired of the outdoors, try shopping in the historic downtown area packed with interesting shops.
