Karuizawa is a very nice area, with many art museums. We visited the Hiroshi Senju museum, which was beautiful. The only disadvantage would be that public transportation is very scarce, and buses don't run frequently (every 40 min ~ 1 hr)

3/5 - Okay

The city is rather expensive and there is not a whole lot going on in the area, considering most shops close fairly early.
