Deserted but fun to wander…

Today, I went to the Tsuruya the large super market near my house. As you can see on the photo, there was no one else walking in the section. (the photo is taken at the beer & other alcohols section ). We saw some people in some other sections but still not so many. In terms of the size and variety of foods, the Tsuruya in Karuizawa is the “super” largest super market which I have been to in Japan. All the ones with other corporates in Tokyo are smaller as you may know. There are a few convenience stores in / around Karuizawa but any one who is planning on staying a few days or more in Karuizawa, I recommend Tsuruya to buy breakfast meals such as dairy foods and meats and even row fish. Today (still in April) we felt the store was deserted but it was just fun to wander around the store. But make sure to remember that there will be huge number of people especially in July and August.


About Shuichiro (Inactive)

My name is Shu Ono and I became self-employed 4 years ago and started my own tourism business called Jissen Inbound. I just wanted to introduce myself and my travel journal which I will try my best to keep updated with all my trips in Nagano (both business and pleasure. Just a little about myself: I'm originally from Osaka, Japan, the second largest city in Japan. But after graduation from an university in Tokyo, I spent about 4 years in other coutnries - Australia, USA and England. Please don't ask me which food I like - fish & chips or hamburger. :) I like Japanese foods very much. Recently I'm really interested in Japanese calligraphy andI play golf which I hope to do so this coming summer in Nagano. Also I love traveling Japan. I'm happy with what I'm doing in business because my clients are usually ryokans and hotels in coutryside including Nagano. I hope to use my experiences to make contributions to the Nagano tourism blog site. TKsyusyu
