The Rejuvenating Hot Springs of Hoshinoya Karuizawa

By Brody Patterson


Updated on

The amazing resort known as Hoshinoya Karuizawa, located at the foot of Mount Asama in Nagano Prefecture, has been welcoming travelers for a century now, almost without interruption. It has been recently reopened and is now an elegant, modern retreat in one of Japan’s most picturesque locations.

Its 77 comfortable villas line the Yukawa River, giving their tenants access to the rejuvenating Tombo-no-yu hot springs, as well as the spa and Meditation Bath. After an invigorating treatment, one always has the option of exploring the resort’s idyllic surroundings. Less adventurous guests can explore what the resort’s restaurants have to offer, with Japanese and even French cuisine available.

The resort is fairly secluded, with a train journey from Narita Airport lasting a bit over two hours, with one transfer. There’s also the option of arranging for shuttle or limousine service. Not the shortest journey, but Hoshinoya Karuizawa is totally worth it.
