Karuizawa, the Foundation for Hoshino Resort

HOSHINOYA KaruizawaHokuriku-Koshinetsu / Nagano

As If Asking for a Break, Listen to the Sounds of the ForestHOSHINOYA Karuizawa
Hoshinoya Karuizawa is Japan's representative highland resort located at an altitude of approximately 900-1000m in Nagano Prefecture. It has a history of being an inn village during the Edo period and a summer resort for foreigners in the Meiji period. Today it is known as a popular tourist destination. Easy access by Shinkansen, allows convenient transportation from downtown Tokyo. With a wide range of activities to enjoy from shopping to nature walks, it has now become a popular tourist attraction all year round. The foot of Asama, beautiful enough to state that mountain birds were born in this forest, fascinates people with its rich natural scenery, adding to the cultural heritage. Hoshinoya Karuizawa, the beginning of Hoshino Resort, was built with quality relaxation in mind, with the intention to ensure peace of mind and body for those who visit, unattainable in the city center.
The rooms at Hoshinoya Karuizawa are divided into three types, each designed to fit the surrounding terrain and maintain a beautiful landscape. The room of Yamaroji, where you can feel the forest at your fingertips as it sits on a hillside. The room in Mizunami, where the gentle sound of flowing water echoes along the river, allows inner peace. And the Niwaroji room, where the trees in the vast garden spread out in front of you, gives you a sense of freedom and a feeling of the mountains of Karuizawa. The essence of Karuizawa is well integrated indoors as well, thanks to the ventilation system installed on the ceiling. Permeates pleasant and cool vibes in the summer, while during winter, the ondol system using the heat of the hot springs warmly wraps your feet. You can spend quality time as if you were a resident here in the comfort of a relaxed space, by becoming one with the land and nature.
