Minerva Sabo

This is the cafe that cast members Yuudai, Shion, Ami and Mizuki visited. A long-standing pasta house that has been around for over 40 years, it’s a western-style building entwined with rich, green ivy and has a retro Showa era-style atmosphere. We also recommend their sweets made with classic Karuizawa ingredients like apricot, Asama berries, cowberry and more.

Paitsubooru

This cafe is where Taka and Seina visited. The cafe’s name comes from Norwegian and refers to the fire lit to burn wood. You can feel the warmness of the wood in the interior. This is coupled with the fire stove in the middle which heats up the cafe. Their handmade cakes go perfect with the coffee they serve.

Libisco Karuizawa

Taka and Aya roll up to this shop which sells ice cream and gelato. Aya gives huge praise to this place, exclaiming, “From everything I’ve eaten so far this is the most delicious!” The reason she says this is because what she had was made using milk fresh from that morning and fresh fruits. You can always expect freshness when you eat there. Their products also have low sugar content and use no powdered milks or preservatives meaning you can fully enjoy the quality of real ingredients. They also use no eggs so those with allergies can have peace of mind.
