Getting There

Follow Route 157 from Karuizawa. Turn left at Toriibara intersection. Head straight towards Sawaya Jam Factory (Nagano Prefecture, Kitasaku District, Karuizawa, Hotchi, 2785−108). When to road seems to dead end turn left then make an immediate right. Drive another 5 minutes up hill as the road narrows and winds.

Barely three parking spaces. Three minute approach (100 paces), no ups and downs walking through tall sasa grass.
